Caring Circle has a broad vision of reaching out to our entire community in as many ways as needed with health and wellness support. In response to feedback from our community, Caring Circle is launching a new program. Caring Circle’s CONNECTIONS Program aims to provide companionship to those on the Island who are seeking social contact and companionship. The volunteers in our CONNECTIONS program will come and visit people in their home to chat, share stories, read, play a game or do a craft, take a walk together, or perhaps be a grand-figure to a family.

December 3 – 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. – Bowen Island Lodge Seaside Retreat
Conversations and Questions about Death and Dying on Bowen
This one day symposium is not just for elders who are looking at issues around death and dying…this is for anyone who is interested in advance care planning, palliative care, dying on Bowen, or is looking after someone or might be looking after someone down the road, who would like to spend their last months and days in their own home on Bowen. Please come to find out more about these concerns and bring a friend. We would greatly appreciate your help in spreading the word on Island with anyone in your circle of email friends. We’ve booked Bowen Lodge as we’re hoping to attract lots of people as this has been a familiar topic at Caring Circle for people dropping in for support.
Nine years ago I started the Reindeer Run as I wanted to offer a winter walk/run event to get us outside and moving in the grey and drizzle and at the same time support Bowen Island’s Christmas Hamper Fund. We raise heart rates, have a whole lot of fun in less than perfect weather conditions – all the while helping to ensure everyone’s Christmas is a little merrier. How wonderful is that?
