"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."

As Promised

I attended the RDSP Information Session put on by Human Resources and Social Development Canada in Halifax last week. It was a good session, with the only unanswered questions being those involving some further issues in the provincial jurisdiction, which I hope to clear up soon.

And I think it's a very good thing I went, considering I have been asked by Caregivers NS to speak at the RDSP session in their upcoming Atlantic Caregivers Expo at the Exhibition Park in Halifax.

The Expo is on for two days, May 9 and 10, 2009, and the RDSP presentation will be on the Saturday afternoon, May 8th.

And as promised, I now have the list of presentations which will be offered at the Atlantic Caregivers Expo on May 9 and 10, 2009, at the Exhibition Park in Halifax, NS.

Along with the RDSP session, they include topics such as

  • Who is Taking Care?: Accessing Primary Health Care and Support for Dementia Caregivers

  • Medication Review Program

  • Nova Scotia Pharmacare Programs

  • Adult Day Programs

  • Demystifying Mental Health Services and Supports

  • The ABCs of Long Term Care Insurance

  • Care for the Caregiver and

  • The Basics of Estate Planning
You can find a complete description of each session and see what other sessions are being offered here.

And don't forget, admission is free.

See you there.
