Your invited to…
Summer 2020 Series: Patio Ponderings with Kath & Mish
A series of online meet-ups for BC’s health care assistants.
As a Care Aide, Home Support Worker, Community Health Worker or other similar role in the time of COVID, you’re doing incredible work in tough circumstances. Even with support from your leaders, you might still feel disconnected or that it’s hard to find a laugh when you need it.
- Would you like to connect with colleagues from across BC?
- Do you want to share stories and stresses in a safe environment?
- Do you want to be inspired with education and strategies for coping in 2020?
If yes… then you are invited to join Patio Ponderings with Kath and Misha — an online gathering offered by the BC Centre for Palliative Care that offers you a safe environment to share your stories, stresses and triumphs… and there’s a fun contest for prizes!

|Summer 2020 – Dealing with Fear and Anxiety|
|We are bombarded with news, stories and statistics about the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn new ways to look at fear and to treat the pandemic as a challenge, not a threat. We all have stories we hear, stories we tell ourselves and stories we share… do they fill you with fear and stop you from moving forward, or sustain and support you?||

|Summer 2020 – Adapting Rituals of Grief and Growth|
|With COVID-19 restrictions, many of our rituals for loss and grief have been cancelled or postponed.

|Summer 2020 – Self- Reflection to Support Grief and Growth|
