Access Leisure Monthly Calendar - Virtual activities

COVID-19

With the current and evolving COVID-19 situation, all Access Leisure structured programs and events (that require participants to physically meet) are postponed. See our virtual activities, listed below .

We hope to resume regular programming as soon as possible. This decision was difficult to make, and for all of us to work together using appropriate measures we hope to protect the health and well-being of our community. Like the rest of the world, we are adapting and responding to new information and changing protocols as needed daily. We realize there is a lot of fear and anxiety out there, but we are a strong and resilient community.

We look forward to seeing you all via Zoom! (Please see Zoom information on the Word and PDF versions of the calendar and at the bottom of this web page). All Zoom programs are currently free. No registration required. Email us if you have questions or concerns. We hope to be able to meet in person for activities and programs soon. In the meantime, we hope that some of you may enjoy these online gatherings to have some fun during the shelter-in-place time.

GRATITUDE AND FLOW

Purpose: While we all navigate these challenging times; Access Leisure staff would like to provide time for parents, family members and care providers of Access Leisure participants to come together to discuss topics as needed. These sessions are meant to be an open discussion and a time to discuss any challenges you are having as well as a time for us to assist you in finding the resources you and your family may need to continue to be healthy at home.

This month we will focus on gratitude and flow. The session will have time for open discussion, questions and collective brainstorming to work on challenges and to share resources.
Future topics may include at-home leisure activities, mental health needs, quality of life, discussion of additional local resources, and more. Your needs will steer the conversation. Depending on interest, we may seek out guest speakers who can further assist us with topics that affect us all. We hope you find this time to be useful and fulfilling. In the future, this will be a great framework to build from as we develop in-person community support groups which go beyond the current Covid-19 situation.
Note: 
these sessions are truly meant for families, parents, and care providers. Please avoid bringing your children or participants into these sessions if possible. We are hopeful that this will be a “safe space” of expression. Conversations will not be recorded and will remain confidential amongst those in attendance. Thank you for your understanding and participation.

Free! Use the Zoom link, just above, to log in at 6:00pm. We will take a few minutes to make sure everyone has logged on. Then we will have introductions as needed and start our conversation. Thank you for attending!
