Did you miss our last Business After 5?

If so, let us tell you a bit about the event. The June BA5 was hosted by Goderich Place Retirement Residence, an intimate seniors residence that’s been a part of the Goderich community for 25 years. A half-dozen staff members welcomed members to a lounge, set up with build-your-own Caesars and an enormous create-your-own nacho bar. After introductions and a social time, a guest speaker outlined Community Paramedicine, a program offered through the County of Huron that provides support to people in their homes, especially during later years. In particular, Project Lifesaver Huron was created for individuals living with Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism, acquired brain injury, Downs syndrome or other cognitive disorders. They wear a lightweight transmitter which emits a radio signal that can be located up to 2 km away by specially trained OPP officers using mobile locating equipment.

Members also toured the residence.

The next Business After 5 is tomorrow, July 20, hosted by the Blyth Festival and BRØD bread and pastry at Blyth Memorial Hall, lower hall.
