14th Huron County Culture Change Coalition (CCC) Meeting

This was a big meeting. All of our Discovery recruitment materials are ready to be distributed and we are planning to begin our Discovery interviews and sessions within the next few weeks.

As I wrote about in my last post, we spent time in our last meeting critically reflecting on where we are and what we are doing. The group felt unsure of their role and our purpose. As a result, we thought it was important to take time in this meeting to regroup and refocus our efforts.

3rd Community Care Access Centre (CCAC)/Saint Elizabeth Culture Change Coalition (CCC) Meeting

Today, our CCC welcomed even more new members – a representative from the Alzheimer Society of Huron County and several Saint Elizabeth personal support workers. Consistent attendance at our meetings is still a challenge, so we discussed ways to include the perspectives of all members, particularly those unable to attend meetings.

As the membership of our group continued to grow and I struggled to understand how all of these community organisations and groups relate with one another.
