PeerConnect: Managing Personal Care
April 15, 2020 @ 7:00 pm CDT - 8:00 pm CDT
Personal assistants play an important role in allowing wheelchair users to maintain independence by helping with daily tasks such as getting dressed, bathing and preparing food. However, finding affordable and reliable long term care can be challenging. Join us to share best practices for managing your personal care and talk about resources that are available!
BACKBONES PeerConnect is a program offering monthly online meetups for people in the spinal cord injury and disease (SCI/D) community looking to connect with their peers. Whether you have many years post injury, or if you are new to the community, PeerConnect is a great way to meet others, share your story, and learn from other people with similar experiences to you.
PeerConnect meetups will be offered monthly via Zoom Video Conferencing. Up to 10 participants with SCI/D will be allowed to register via EventBrite. There will be a waitlist – in the case a registered participant must cancel we will offer the spot to the next person on the list. Participants will be emailed the meeting link a few days prior to the session and the morning of.
PeerConnect sessions will be started and moderated by a person with SCI/D who has experience with peer support and mentoring.
