Centre for Disability offering new programs
Published 2:51 PST, Fri January 22, 2021
The Richmond Centre for Disability is rolling out some new programs via Zoom.
“We are not admitting any walk-in clientele at this time,” says community outreach co-ordinator Dave Thomson. “Yet, all staff are working in a rotational system, answering phones and responding to emails.”
The switch to online programming has allowed staff to try out some interesting new offerings, says Thomson.
A popular ongoing program, the Wellness Connection is combining with the Relaxation Retreat session and is being offered on Wednesdays from 3 to 4 p.m. through March 31.
The Ted Talk sharing forum is offered Mondays from 2:30-3:30 p.m. weekly through March 29. The social games club runs Tuesdays from 2:30-3:30 p.m. through March 30.
A new fun exercise class is being offered on Fridays, starting this week through March 26. From 1 to 2 p.m., people can join a light and gentle class to get their bodies moving.
Through its new YouTube channel, the Richmond Centre for Disability (RCD) will be delivering the weekly Get Good @ series of videos, Thursdays at 1 p.m. Each video will discuss a specific topic to help people learn more and improve skills.
And the RCD ShareNet, which starts Feb. 1, will air 10 to 30 minute videos every Monday and Wednesday at 1 p.m. to help connect viewers to up-to-date disability related information. Topics will include program information, disability information, peer sharing, and professional chat sessions with sought-after experts.
