Meals on Wheels Presentation

 

Register by calling the Yellowhead County Wildwood Office at 1-800-814-3945 or 780-325-3782.

Meals on Wheels brings the food to those in need—but you can bring the passion! The Meals on Wheels program is a huge help to those who can’t cook for themselves or don’t currently have access to food.

 

For example, the program provides much-needed relief to those who are discharged from the hospital and are on their own, single residents (or single residents with small children), and single seniors. And Meals on Wheels is definitely in demand in Yellowhead County and Parkland County west.

But like most good-will programs, Meals on Wheels needs local helping hands. That’s why Lindsay Rothman, the Client Services Manager with the Edmonton Meals on Wheels program, will be coming to the Tipple Park Museum in Evansburg on February 1 to bring a Meals on Wheels Frozen Meals Presentation and Meal Sampling at 6:30 pm.

Come and find out how we can bring Meals on Wheels to the hamlets of Yellowhead County and Parkland County! And if you’d like to see what goodies the Meals on Wheels program is cooking up, then this presentation is also for you!

The selection of affordable, Edmonton-made frozen meals includes beef, poultry, seafood, pork, and veggie dishes; hearty soups; breakfasts; desserts and sweets; and extras! You can also order a 5 meal sampler pack, 3 meal sampler pack or a soup sampler pack. Check out the full menu at mealsonwheelsedmonton.org. 

If you or your organization is interested in becoming a local Coordinator of the Meals on Wheels program, then please call the Yellowhead County Wildwood Office to register to attend at 780-325-3782 or 1-800-814-3935.

COMPASS for the Caregiver Sessions Starting Soon

Posted in News Releases

COMPASS for the Caregiver Sessions Starting Soon

Yellowhead County Family and Community Support Services will be hosting COMPASS for the Caregiver, a course specifically created for caregivers of parents, spouses, an elderly friend, family member, or children.

According to Caregivers Alberta: "Caregiving can be a stressful, isolating, and overwhelming experience. It can have a negative impact on the caregiver’s physical and mental health. COMPASS helps caregivers balance their own well-being with the challenges of caregiving."

During the sessions, the facilitator will be going through a Compass for Caregiver book that is provided by the Alberta Caregivers Association. This multi-stage course will help caregivers with learning resilience and give them strategies to cope with the stress of caregiving during their journey. A complete list of the module topics is available here.

Caregivers will have a chance to come together to learn something new and through their experiences help each other as they go through the Compass for the Caregiver sessions together. Everyone will sign a Confidentiality Agreement so that whatever is shared stays in those sessions.

The Compass for Caregiver Sessions start on Wednesday, February 7, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Sessions will run for 8 weeks to March 28. The final get together will be held at the Yellowhead County Wildwood Office on April 11.

If you would like to attend, please call the Yellowhead County Wildwood Office at 780-325-3782 or 1-800-814-3935 to register. Please register one week prior to the start date. There is a cost of $20.00 for the Compass for Caregiver book. Light refreshments will be available.
