I assume for people who haven’t previously been vaccinated or need their second, not a third booster shot.

For people who havent had their 1st or 2nd? Or is it booster shots already

Do you know if there will be another clinic end of october to vaccinate the 5 to 12 yrs old ?

Happy to provide a (masked) ride to anyone who needs it. DM me.

Chris Kennedy, a fabulous physiotherapist that comes to Galiano is offering a free 4 week online group exercise class! Check it out!
https://facebook.com/inreachphysio/posts/…InReach Online Physio is looking for 6 people interested in taking part in a free 4-week trial of our new small group exercise class called "Strength for Life". After this initial trial we plan to officially launch the class this fall!

WHAT IS IT? A small group exercise and education class with the goal of teaching safe and effective strength exercise to promote healthy aging. It's designed to be suitable for a wide range of health conditions including osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Each class will consist of approximately 30 minutes of exercise (including warm-up and cool-down) and 10-15 minutes of education and discussion on a relevant topic.

WHEN? This 4 week trial will consist of a 45 minute class 1x per week on Wednesdays beginning on September 15. We will have two groups of 3 people - one at 10am and the other at 6pm. All participants must be able to attend the same class time for all 4 weeks.

WHO? 6 healthy British Columbians over 45 years of age with a reliable internet connection and who have the ability to safely and comfortably get up and down from the floor. Further screening will be provided during a free 15 minute video consultation with InReach Physiotherapist Chris Kennedy who will be leading the classes.

WHERE? In the comfort of your home using Zoom.

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT? A sturdy chair, a bit of space (ie; a living room), an exercise mat (or some carpet that you don't mind lying down on), and a video chat device (laptop or tablet would be better than a smartphone for this purpose).

COST? Free! All that we ask is that you provide us with some feedback along the way.

If you or someone you know are interested or would like to learn more please email us at inreachphysio@gmail.com

If you'd like to see us offer other types of classes for specific groups or sports, let us know!

Always a difficult decision to postpone an event, but there are just some cases where its the best decision. We are postponing our first Walk/Run to the Spring. Well keep you apprised of when we pick a new date! Until then, keep training, keep pledging, and stay safe!

This seems totally reasonable and is the practice and expectation in most other clinics.

It’s hot out there and we wait at the ferries, so an interesting graph and a reminder to be vigilant. The asphalt is too hot for bare feet or dogs feet.

“Quality health care” is something we can all agree on as a priority

The Galiano Health Care Society is committed to providing an up-to-date, well equipped, community minded, inclusive and accessible health care centre for all islanders and visitors. This facility is the heart of health care on Galiano, and the home of our excellent primary care practitioners – Two Family Physicians and a Family Nurse Practitioner. Medical Services.

But we are not a one trick pony, as this website will reveal. Aging in Place, Community Wellness Programs, Better at Home, Mental Health and Wellness, Seniors Walk and Talk, Transitions in Dying & Grieving, are all Health Care Society initiatives, programs or partnerships designed with your life-long health in mind.

As well, many allied health services locate themselves at the health centre: a weekly blood/specimen collection lab, the Home & Community Care Nurse, the Public Health Nurse, the Dentist and Hygienist, the Foot Care Nurse, the Chiropractor, and Physiotherapist.

We are a virtual smorgasbord of health care offerings, and very proud of it. Please explore the wonderful pages on this website. We have tried to capture the essence of the Galiano Health Care Society and Centre.

You too can contribute to our Centre’s health by visiting our How to Help pages.

Read on, to your health!

Executive Director/Manager
