"As long as the world shall last there will be wrongs, and if no man objected
and no man rebelled, those wrongs would last forever

The NS Partnership on Respite, Family Health and Well-being is pleased to invite you to our new webpage on Ning.com. Ning is a social networking site, but it has a look and a feel of a webpage. We have developed the site to offer you a central location for information and to connect with others around respite topics and issues.

You can easily access things like:
  • Information - The Caregivers Weekly is now called Tips of the Week. All issues of the Caregivers Weekly are stored on the Ning site.
  • Events - we have a calendar section with events listed. Just click on the event you want to learn about !
  • Forums - the site allows members to discuss issues on-line. Have a topic you want to discuss? Contact the Adminstrator at this email address and tell us what you are thinking of. A discussion can be set up very quickly.
This site will be used along with the Staying Connected email group. It offers you another way to be in contact with other families in the province. Starting this week, for instance, the Tips of the Week (Caregivers Weekly) will be sent out to the Staying Connected Group via email, as well as published on the Ning site. We hope this site will help the respite community continue to connect and interact together.

How do you find the site? Please enter www.respitepartnership.ning.com and click on Join Us on the right hand side of the screen. Just follow the on screen instructions. There will be a series of profile questions to answer. These are considered private and will only be seen by the administrator. Once you have completed the questions, the administrator will accept you and you have full access to the webpage.

So come and join us!
