More Stories from Caring Circle

Categories: Activities, FeaturedAuthor:

This article comes to follow-up Caring Circle’s article in the June Bulletin. You may already know about some of our more visible activities like the Driver’s Program and our partnership in the Lunch Program. We hope that you will watch for the launch of our Befriending Program this fall. Caring Circle was founded to help people navigate the health care system. Often this work is not visible except to those individuals and families whose lives are affected. The following stories may help you to understand some of the positive impacts our work has in people’s lives.

➢ One young woman in her early 20’s, who has had difficulty with ADHD, was becoming increasingly distressed around her inability to find meaningful work off the island. Caring Circle did some research and found an organization in North Vancouver that meets with people with disabilities.

Concussion (Traumatic Brain Injury) Education Session

Categories: FeaturedTags: Author:

A few weeks ago Caring Circle organized and hosted a Concussion (Traumatic Brain Injury) Education Session with guest speakers including a brain health expert physician, a physiotherapist, two counsellors, and an educator.It was well attended and we know that there were others who wanted to attend but their schedules didn’t jive. So we’ve created this VERY SHORT survey to ascertain if there is any interest in providing some follow up programming with guest speakers that might cover topics we didn’t get around to in the first two hour session. We are wanting to know if there is a need on Island for a support group? walking group? education? tools to help you cope? What is it you need to support your healing process? Please fill out this survey to give us a sense of the needs in the community in this regard – it will just take 5′. And you need to press “submit” before this Saturday at 6 p.m. when the survey closes.
