Family Support Network Zoom Meeting on April 7 & 14, 2022 7pm-8:30pm
Support Circles and Networks? Are they for your family member?
Circles of Support and Personal Networks of Support are in the minds of many families and individuals. Who will be there to help keep an eye on our family member and stay involved in their well being, when parents are gone? This is a difficult topic and stressful to imagine: one that may keep us up at night.
Especially with the way the developmental service sector is set up to respond to families and their loved ones on a crisis-only basis - then to be left on a waitlist for group homes which gets longer and longer. Circles have been a way for our loved ones to know there are people around them who care about them and when the circle is established and sustained, we as families may have some peace of mind.
Family Support Network - Newmarket/Aurora is hosting Niki Stevenson, of Facilitation Leadership Group, to offer 2 sessions on this topic.
In session one, Niki will provide practical information related to creating, hosting, and maintaining a support circle, providing tips on inviting members, building connections and holding gatherings.
Date: Thursday, April 7, 2022 Time: 7pm - 8:30pm
In session two, Niki will discuss the maintenance and sustainability of support circles as they evolve over time, changing needs, and staying engaged.
Date: Thursday, April 14, 2022 Time: 7pm - 8:30pm
