Wellness (Tuesday mornings from 10:00 – 11:30 am) October 26 – December 7, 2021
Wellness includes activities, choices and lifestyles that lead to optimal health and wellbeing. Using self-care as a foundation, we will talk about using strategies and developing skills to increase confidence and independence in our lives.

Spend an afternoon with others and be prepared to have fun! Word games and Bingo are favourite activities in this group.

Drop-in Group (Wednesday mornings from 10:00 – 11:30 am) October 27 – December 8, 2021
This group is great for those who are wanting to stay connected but are unable to commit to an entire group session. Drop-in will be registered to limit group size and therefore is not an additional group option. Participants are responsible for booking their own Calgary Access trips for this group.

Life Skills (Wednesday afternoons from 1:00 – 2:30 pm) October 27 – December 8, 2021
This group focuses on the development of life skills to help individuals achieve personal growth and promote independence. We will cover topics such as interpersonal skills, obtaining a job or exploring volunteer opportunities, household management, budgeting, meal planning, and time management.

Men’s Group (Thursday mornings from 10:00 – 11:30 am) October 28 – December 9, 2021
This is a great group for men looking to discuss any challenges they may be having in their lives. Topics in this group are open and can include well-being, relationships, and dealing with day-to-day difficulties. This is a communication-based peer support group.

Art (Thursday afternoons from 1:00 – 2:30 pm) October 28 – December 9, 2021
Join other survivors in a fun and relaxing environment as we complete various artistic projects and learn about using creativity to improve wellness and well-being. Please note this is not a formal art instruction group.

COVID-19 Safety and Protocols

Help prevent the spread. To keep other clients and our staff safe, we require that you follow current COVID-19 health measures. COVID-19 is a new kind of virus and scientists are learning more about it as time goes on. People who have it can spread it through things like coughing and sneezing. You can get it by breathing in tiny droplets containing the virus. You can also get it by touching a surface where droplets have landed and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.

Some people may have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all and still spread the virus.

Symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Cough (new cough or worsening chronic cough)
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing (new or worsening)
  • Runny nose
  • Sore throat
  • Practice physical distancing
  • Practice good hand hygiene. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water after using the washroom, blowing your nose, or touching any communal surfaces.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow
  • Stay home if you are feeling sick or anyone in your household or care centre is sick
  • No handshakes, hugging, or fist bumps
  • Do not touch your face (eyes, nose, and mouth)
  • If you are feeling unwell during your time in group, please let a staff member know

  • Access clients: It is your responsibility to have alternate transportation available if you become symptomatic while attending group. Access will not pick you up for a return trip
  • You are legally required to self-isolate for 10 days if you develop any COVID-19 symptoms
  • You are legally required to self-isolate for 14 days if you have returned from outside of Canada or had close contact with someone with COVID-19
