The Independent Living Resource Centre understands the overwhelming feelings Managers have when starting off in the Self and Family Managed Care option. Indeed, because of this, the ILRC has created a Peer Support Group specifically for Managers as we want to support you wherever and whenever possible.
The Self and Family Managers Peer Group is a group made up of Managers who want to share and learn together. This gives Managers the opportunity to possibly find new staff, learn and understand employment standards/payroll and just all around support to each other. Within this group you will make new friends, learn new methods on how to manage your model, and create a long-lasting network that is always there to support you.
Meetings are chaired by a Manager on a rotation basis. Each Manager has the role and responsibility to inform the chairperson of which topics or issues they would like more information, and we'll see if we can set up speakers for you. Quarterly, the group meets with a representative from Winnipeg Regional Health Authority to discuss any questions Managers may have. Meetings are typically from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the ILRC office.
Currently there are no peer support group meetings scheduled due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.Self & Family Managed Care
