Great News! Highlights and Halloween

It’s been a fantastic fall at Community Connections – and we thought we’d share some of our favorite highlights from this past month in Community Support to round out all our Community Inclusion month fun!

Roy left everyone full to the brim after feasting on his spectacular bounty of breakfast food – check out the perfect pancakes these guys turned out!

There were a few birthdays, but celebrating Kim’s out to lunch was an extra thrill – everyone managed to keep it a secret that they knew about his birthday until the lunchtime surprise!

With Halloween at the end of the month, everyone’s attention turned to costumes and how to dress up for the occasion – Teri-Kay rocks a royal look, while Jaclynn went all-out as a classic character.

There was also time for getting in a healthy amount of exercise – Graham is almost always smiling, after a kick-butt workout is no exception!

Those who absolutely love walking were treated to wonderful walking weather at the very end of the month!

What a way to spend October!  Looking forward to sharing more costume photos from our Facebook page very soon!  Stay tuned…

DABC Community Updates!

Hey everyone, we have heard from our colleagues at Disability Alliance BC that the Province of BC has issued a bulletin that explains the compensation process for former residents of Woodlands – check out more details at their website here or visit the Province’s site here.

It’s also the DABC Community Update that let us know about the Complex Medical Dental (CMD) pilot project funded by the provincial government (in addition to the existing benefits available).  This project is led by the BC Dental Association and creates new opportunities for coverage for people on disability assistance, income assistance, and their families.

Applications to participate in the CMD pilot project must be completed by a person’s dentist – we have included the DABC Community Update and the Information and applications forms below.
