Developing a Personal Continuity Plan: ABLE2 Grow Education Series

10 Mar, 2021

ABLE2 is offering a series of virtual workshops to help families create a safe and secure future for a loved one with a disability.

Workshop Description

Given the current pandemic environment many of us have become all too aware of ‘business continuity plans’.  In short – these plans illustrate what an organization plans to do in the event of a specific or even a significant change.  These same principles can be applied to our own personal circumstances as well. 

Rob Meredith, our speaker and facilitator, is a financial planner with over 10 years of experience leading individuals, families and businesses through continuity planning. 

The aim of this workshop is to provide you the framework, questions and decisions required to ensure you have a plan that can be operationalized in the event of a change (large or small).  Rob will begin by illustrating where you are today and what information is required to determine your current position.  Next, he will walk the group through how to determine what risks to your current circumstance may exist.  Finally, we will begin to formulate answers to those ‘what if’s and determine actionable steps to begin to make your plan operational. 

Our hope is that you walk away from this session, with a framework to help you customize your path forward with confidence, and moreover are able to identify blind spots that may require action or address.

Who should attend?

Parents and caregivers of a loved one with a disability.

Caregiver Retreat

Caregiver Retreat

The retreat will celebrate the resilience that caregivers share, introduce them to new tools and ways of thinking, demonstrate the importance of connection, and will leave caregivers feeling positive about their role. The goal of the day will be to decrease caregiver stress, provide tools and strategies to assist caregivers in managing their own mental wellness, and provide informative, relaxing and interactive sessions. This is the largest caregiver retreat and conference in Ontario. Last year we had nearly 200 in-person attendees and 2000+ virtual viewers.
