A Note about Friendship

A Note about Friendship

Personal networks are not about doing a favour for people with disabilities or their families. People join networks because they genuinely care about the person at the centre. Network members receive friendship as well as give it. There are many, many people participating in networks who have related that they receive more than they contribute.

As we all know, however, friendship cannot be taken as a given nor does it come automatically. It takes chemistry and time. We look for opportunities to meet people, in situations where the person we’re working with is relaxed and comfortable. When we see people “click”, we make it easy for them to stay in touch.

We have found that a caring, supportive personal network is the cornerstone of a good life for our loved ones. To find out more about creating a network for your family member, please take a look at our workshops and publications, join the conversation with other family members in our forums, or contact us <mailto:inquries@plan.ca> .
