Working in the field of community living means long days of driving all over town, waiting at doctor and government offices, and feeling like every success comes with two or more failures. Inspiration 2017 is an opportunity to come together with other individuals who work in the field. It is a time to connect with your colleagues from your own and other agencies. It is a time to take a break from your regular schedule and do something to rejuvenate yourself. It is time to remember why you chose this field of work.
This year, we will welcome a speaker from Family Caregivers BC to share their experience as a caregiver to an individual with a disability and the important role that paid workers play in theirs and the individuals lives. They will provide strategies for keeping the caregiver-worker relationship collaborative and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
