PARKLAND VALLEY DEMENTIA SURVEY

Parkland Valley is studying ways to meet the growing wave of people who will be living with dementia aiming to make the District more dementia-friendly. Your completion of this survey will provide much-needed data to propose future socially-inclusive activities for family members, friends and neighbours living with dementia, and to identify ways to reduce stigma from the symptoms of dementia.

There are two different surveys with a total of 4 options. The first survey is intended for Businesses and Volunteer Organizations to provide data on inclusiveness of services and programs. We ask that businesses or volunteer organizations participate in this survey. This survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

The second survey is for individuals living with dementia and their care partners to see how inclusive they feel their communities are. Depending on how you identify yourself, you will be taken to different questions for either an individual living with dementia or a care partner or family member of someone living with dementia. This survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Please share this survey within your network within the Parkland Valley District Boundaries (see above map).

Deadline to complete the survey is December 14, 2020.

Churchbridge Fire Rescue Challenge Coin

Churchbridge Fire Rescue has their own challenge coin! A challenge coin is a small medallion that bears an organization's insignia or emblem and is typically carried by the organization's members. The history of the coin has several stories, most of which have military origins. Historically, they were given to prove membership to an organization, to commemorate a special achievement, exchanged in recognition of a visit and also to enhance morale. In moder day, the rules of the challenge coin have become more relaxed. The coin has become a collectors item, sought after by fellow service memebers and emergency services personnel. The Churchbridge Fire Rescue is selling these challenge coins as a fundraiser for their department. The coins can be purchased for $20 from any member of Churchbridge Fire Rescue and at the Town Office. (Shipping at buyers expense).
