Intuitive Community Care

Imagine the greatest challenge you may ever face. Do you expect to face this challenge alone... or as part of a caring community?

If you aren’t able to do a thing yourself, how do you find help with it?

Help with daily living activities, housekeeping, organization, cleaning, cooking, shopping, medication assistance, access to the community, benefit renewal management, medical research and advocacy, and personal care… these should not be special privileges.

What do all these things have in common? 

These are all things people should have support for as part of their community resourcing. No question.  
  Nobody should have to struggle to work out how to hire someone for these things. When a sick or disabled person has no way to meet these basic needs and no money to pay for them, they are vulnerable to exploitation by sex traffickers.
  These kinds of support should be built into how we interact with one another in communities. The more people we have in a community who know they have expertise or experience or just enjoy supporting people in these ways, the closer we get to keeping each other safe from exploitation and creating liveable and fulfilling lives for everyone in our communities.
  How many of these can you do?
  Which would you be willing to do, or enjoy doing?
  Which would you appreciate having someone to do for you–either now or if you need it in the future?
  These questions are important to us.
  We’ve decided to ask them together.

  Cleaning: keeping homes and cars clean and free of dust and debris. Maintaining clean spaces supports people’s health and well being.
  Organization: Keeping supplies, essentials, and food stocked and organized, including shopping and searching for the best prices. Organization that adapts to people’s disabilities ensures they still have access to essentials.
  Cooking: Prepping meals, helping with meal planning, keeping kitchen and food organized, food safe and clean.
  Medication: Managing meds including tracking receipts, expenses and refills and calling the pharmacy, researching new pharmacy options or coverage options when needed, and sending messages to the doctor for refills etc. Ensuring any medication issues are addressed at the appropriate doctor meetings. Developing a good tracking method for them.
  Medical Visits: Assisting with home and out-of-home medical visits, including advocacy.
  Administrative/Advocacy: Making phone calls and following up on benefits and other necessities on someone’s behalf as needed.
