Parents’ Night Out

With generous support from the Guelph Community Foundation, Facilitation Wellington Dufferin is pleased to host a dinner and presentation for family members of adult children who have a developmental disability:
YOU—Strong, Centred and Connected

We all want a good life. For our loved ones. For ourselves. But it takes energy, stamina and community to make it happen. Especially over the long run. The better you’re doing, the more you have to give. Time for a night to focus on YOU.

Learn easy, practical, and proven ways to improve your health, mental health and supports. Meet other fabulous parents who “get it.” Join us for a fun night of delicious food, great company and fresh ideas on self-care.

P.S. There WILL be chocolate!

Monday, 7th May 2018, 5pm – Italian Canadian Club, 135 Ferguson St, Guelph.

Be a donor – Ontario organ donor month

Today, in Ontario, there are over 1,500 people waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. This is their only treatment option, and every 3 days someone will die because they did not get their transplant in time.

But you can help. When you register your consent for organ and tissue donation, you let those waiting know that you would help them if you could.

One donor can save up to 8 lives through organ donation and enhance the lives of up to 75 more through the gift of tissue.
Age alone does not disqualify someone from becoming a donor. The oldest organ donor was over 90 and the oldest tissue donor was over 100. There’s always potential to be a donor; it shouldn’t stop you from registering.
Your current or past medical history does not prevent you from registering to be a donor. Individuals with serious illnesses can, sometimes, be organ and/or tissue donors. Each potential donor is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
