The next scheduled Karamea Public Forum is on February 4, at 2pm at the Bowling Club on Waverley Street. Public forums are intended to provide constructive dialogue with Karameans on a variety of identified topics relevant to our region. Issues and solutions are shared and discussed.
The upcoming forum will focus on the well-being and support of our elder members.
Information will be shared about: health; nutrition; exercise; transport & mobility; housing needs; independence; loneliness; health services & support; and other topics. As well, we want to hear from our community elders about their needs and perspectives. This should be a great session.
I hope that as many of our senior population as possible can be in attendance, to contribute to the discussions by sharing their own knowledge, experience and wisdom. The forum schedule includes refreshments and an open-chat session to allow all to contribute ideas and suggestions.
Invitees to this public forum include:
Bryan Jamieson Community Liaison Officer/ West Coast District Health Board
Jenny Robertson Manager/ West Coast District Health Board
Torfrida Wainwright Carelink/ West Coast District Health Board
Pam Milligan Needs Assessment and Services Coordination/Carelink/ WCDHB
Rosie McGrath West Coast District Health Board /Canterbury District Health Board
