February 28, 2024

THUNDER BAY — The Northern Ontario Home and Community Care Network’s (NOHCCN) 4th Annual Gathering, Our Home Care Successes, included presentations by Anishinabek Nation citizens Priscilla Sky, Karen Pitawanakwat, Dr. Alexa Lesperance, and Miranda Lesperance held Feb. 13-15 at the Valhalla Hotel and Conference Centre in Thunder Bay.

Sky, nurse advisor at Indigenous Services Canada and Long Lake #58 citizen, says her Service Delivery Plan Workshop was about home and community care service delivery plans.

“They get to decide how they run their program and I’m there just to provide the support for that,” Sky says, noting that the service delivery plans are supposed to be updated on a yearly basis. “However, they have been kind of pushed to the wayside because of COVID-19, because of lots of external factors. So now, we are trying to get everybody caught up again on their service delivery plans because they need to be changed.”

Sky says a revised service delivery plan is needed when there are proposed changes.
