Operating as usual

ConnectWell Community Health - Lanark Site

One of our partners has a fresh new name 🙂

We’re thrilled to announce that as of today, ConnectWell Community Health is the new name for Lanark Renfrew Health & Community Services and all its parts and programs offered through Lanark Community Programs, North Lanark Community Health Centre and Whitewater Bromley Community Health Centre – so that includes us!

With 240 staff and 200 volunteers providing services that range from autism services and mental health supports, to primary health care and therapeutic riding, ConnectWell Community Health’s programs and services will remain the same across the large rural geography the organization serves, including Lanark and Renfrew Counties and the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville.

What does that mean for our programming/services? Nothing changes in terms of our offerings – but it does mean we’ll be connecting even more with our colleagues within the ConnectWell team.

The name change will also mean our name transitions to ConnectWell Community Health - Lanark Site. So you can expect to see that name change coming up on our page this week.

To learn about the change and to see our new website, please visit: www.connectwell.ca

03/17/2021

A sobering reminder that all overdoses are medical emergencies. Call 911. The risk of overdose can be reduced by following safer use practices such as: carry a naloxone kit, avoid mixing substances, use a small test dose first, and don’t use alone (maintain COVID-19 precautions). Harm reduction supplies will continue to be offered throughout the pandemic: http://bit.ly/DrugUseHarmReduction

Two Separate Overdose

On March 16th at 10:30 PM officers responded to a second call for an overdose at a residence on George St. A 50-year-old male was administered Naloxone and was now responsive. The male refused to be transported to the Brockville General Hospital for treatment. Again, the suspected cause of the overdose was fentanyl. The third subject, a 21-year-old female, refused medical treatment. Fentanyl is suspected as the cause of the overdose.

A 25 year old male had suffered an overdose and had been administered Naloxone by his friends. The male had regained consciousness and was transported to the Brockville General Hospital for treatment. A second 24 year old male, who was also using with the first male, was also transported to hospital for treatment. The third subject, a 21 year old female, refused medical treatment. Fentanyl is suspected as the cause of the overdose.

On March 16th at 10:30 PM officers responded to a second call for an overdose at a residence on George St. A 50 year old male was administered Naloxone and was now responsive. The male refused to be transported to the Brockville General Hospital for treatment. Again, the suspected cause of the overdose was fentanyl.

“The Health Unit along with community partners are cautioning the community that Leeds, Grenville and Lanark continue to grapple with a dangerously toxic substance supply. The Health Unit also reminds the community that naloxone may not be as effective in reversing overdoses due to the contamination of substances with other drugs such a benzodiazepines (ex. Xannax).

All overdoses are a medical emergency and calling 911 remains the most important step in saving someone’s life. Anyone who suspects or witnesses an overdose should call 9-1-1. The Good Samaritan Drug Overdose Act provides some legal protection against simple drug possession charges for anyone who experiences, witnesses or responds to an overdose and calls 9-1-1.

The risk of an overdose can be reduced by following safer use practices;

Calling 911 in the event of an overdose
Carry a naloxone kit
Avoid mixing substances
Use a small test dose first
Do not use alone (maintain COVID-19 precautions)
Harm reduction supplies (single use equipment, naloxone and drug checking test strips), and further access to services and referrals will continue to be offered throughout Leeds, Grenville and Lanark during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please visit the Health Unit website for more information.”

Pharmacies in Kingston have been & in Ottawa will be administering COVID-19 vaccines ... will this option be available in Brockville & area?
Do you have a "waste" list, if you are going to have vaccines left at the end of the day, people can get to Smiths Falls fast for one so that they are not wasted?
Sports facilities, banquet halls etc were never essential services and should never have been opened. I didn't even realize they were open. I have to work from home because going to work is too dangerous (so I'm told) but I was allowed to go to a sports facility ??? When are things going to make sense.
You would think I would know how old I am, right? Born late in 1961, yes, I know I am 59 but when it is time to sign up for the vaccine, am I considered 59 or does it go by birth year and am I thereby considered 60? I have checked every website available and called Telehealth ON but got no answers except to check with my local Health Unit. So, I'm asking...Thanks in advance!
Are there any plans to set-up mass vaccinations sites similar to what was done for the meningitis vaccine? I would think you could again use shool gyms with their different entrances and exits, use PHNs, current and retired to give the shots and allow for adequate physical distancing.
Why isn't your distribution of vaccine being done for a location centrally located in the Health Region. Kingston is located on the far side of the Unit and many health care professionals will have to drive two hours each way to get a vaccination. This is a really poor distribution system and clearly favors people who live in the Kingston area.
When will vacines be availble to the public here?
Hi, I realize we are still a few weeks away from this, but is there plan for COVID-19 vaccine roll-out to the general public of Leeds Grenville? For example, how and where would citizens of Kemptville get their injection?
I can’t seem to find up to date information about specific numbers of tests/positives/negatives/deaths... I’m sorry - but saying “lots” is not actually helpful. I would like some clear information. Are you able to assist?
Could you please tell me the rules for apartment buildings concerning MASKS?
Shame on you all for attacking randy hillier you should be stripped of your titles publicly shamed and made to toil at hard labour the rest of your days. Disgusting abuse of authority. You took an oath don't forget. Dr paula stewart
