Please see this message from the Windsor-Essex Family Network:

Dear families, friends, and partners,

We couldn’t wait for our newsletter to get this information out to you!


Ideas and Inspiration
We are excited about this new resource created for families by families!

Find out what people and families in Windsor and Essex County have purchased under the Temporary Changes with their Special Services at Home (SSAH) and Passport funding – and much more. Ideas and Inspiration is a document meant to inspire and give new ideas. Click the link to view the document on our website: https://windsoressexfamnet.ca/resources-2/For ease of access, we have also attached it here.

Read what one of our family leaders and a current 2020 member of Windsor-Essex Family Network has said about this document: “Just read it and immediately I have so many ideas that will support my daughter better and support me, as the main caregiver!! We get so busy supporting that I haven’t thought of some of the most logical ideas.”

Feel free share this resource with others from our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WindsorEssexFamilyNetwork/posts/3696942936983194

If you’re supporting a family member with a disability, one of the most important steps you can take to help secure their future is to create a will and estate plan. Wills and estate planning offer families the peace of mind that their loved one will continue to have the resources she needs to be safe and secure in the future.
