I am very happy to announce the South Eastern Ontario Lived Experience Network and the Lived Experience Cafe has received funding and the pause to our program has ended!
I look forward to reconnecting with this great community and to once again be able to both hear and share your ideas, experiences and suggestions for change. Our Next Live Chat will take place the first Tuesday night of the month on Tuesday, April 5th from 6:30-8PM and our day time chat will be the third Monday of the month on Monday, April 18th from noon to 1pm.
This month's topic comes out of discussions at a recent event called Leading High Performance Teams Meeting, involving representatives from all the Long Term Care homes in SE Ontario and Providence Care Seniors Mental Health/Behavioural Support Services. The question was posed to everyone: "How Can We (long term care homes) Hear from the Voice of the Lived Experience?" Please bring your ideas - especially when it comes to dealing with transitions and responsive behaviours. I would also love to hear about some of the other Lived Experience/Caregiver Engagement opportunities that many of you have taken part in since our "break" in December.
Be sure to visit our discussion boards as well. If you wish to email me personally, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
