Bio-Medical Study Group @ The Gathering Place
Oct 9 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

The Bio-Medical Study Group is a group of family and community members who find it inspiring, helpful, and personally rewarding to talk with each other about our own experiences and share new information all about optimal health, balance and well-being. We think about wellness in terms of food and nutrition, making sure sensory needs are met, figuring out mindful and conscious approaches, or looking at what recent research can tell us about medications, seizures, digestive issues and more.

Our conversation focuses on the whole person and how people may respond with more or less sensitivity to their environment, including diet and nutrition, brain coherence, sensory integration issues, the calmness or agitation of those around them, and more.

The group has been meeting monthly for over a year and is open and welcomes new participants! We meet at The Gathering Place (20-850 King St. W, Oshawa), the second Friday of each month at 10am.  Please RSVP your attendance to jklees@dafrs.com so that we can plan a successful morning.

Medical Safeguarding Everyday, and In Time of Pandemic @ Online via Zoom
Oct 26 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Southern Ontario Training Group
and co-sponsor Durham Association for Family Resources and Support
In conjunction with the Social Role Valorization Implementation Project Presents

Medical Safeguarding Everyday, and In Time of Pandemic:
a three part series using video conferencing technology.

This workshop will be particularly helpful for family members and human service professionals who accompany people with intellectual and/or other impairments in obtaining medical care.

The workshop is inspired by the work of the late Dr. W. Wolfensberger of the Syracuse Training Institute, as well as on the practical experiences of clinicians, family members, and advocates. It explores the unpleasant and paradoxical reality that anyone who is hospitalized is exposed to grave dangers, which jeopardize that person’s health and safety. This is a reality for all ill people in the hospital, including valued citizens, but is especially ominous for people who are members of a socially disadvantaged class, including those who are elderly and/or impaired.

We offer guidance, from the perspective of an advocate, a nurse, and a person with a disability who manages her own practical care, for what is to be done to help ensure good outcomes. The workshop will offer some practical information and several examples of necessary guidelines and measures for protecting people in the hospital. It will also explore the practical challenges of supporting people during a pandemic, especially in light of the restrictive policies limiting patient accompaniment.

Session 1: General Perils in Modern Hospitals  – Monday, October 26, 2020, 1:00-4:00 pm EDT

Session 2: Specific Perils Faced by People with Impairments in Hospitals, and What Can Be Done About It   – Wednesday, October 28, 2020, 1:00-4:00 pm EDT

Session 3: Protective Measures During Pandemic  – Friday, October 30,1:00-4:00 pm EDT

The workshop will be take place using Zoom video conferencing technology. It will be presented in lecture format and will include opportunities for some discussion with the presenters.
