Reach Out to Just One More
Hi everyone, Yvonne Heath here. I am back in the studio at
Hunters Bay Radio and I have my lovely guest Suzanne Willett (back
there, hiding behind the plexi glass). Can you hear her? I hope so
because she's not as loud as I am!
Suzanne is the Executive Director at Community Living Huntsville.
We have had a great conversation, we have absolutely, had a
great conversation. What I wanted to know is how we can better
support our community members, those with disabilities,
developmental disabilities, that community living supports, and
everyone actually who may be alone lonely, isolated.
It's not just people that we support are feeling lonely, isolated
these days. It's it's your neighbors, it's your people down the street.
It's everyone. So, so, so important. And I think that we have to
remember that and take our blinders off. And as I shared a few weeks
ago Pete Bombachi, from the #GenWell project, always reach out to
just one more person. Let's be aware and if everyone reached out to
just one more person and had a conversation, a quick phone call something just to check in, in this pandemic, during the winter,
ongoing, just one more you could make the difference.
So please listen to this show, and keep that in mind. Always.
Suzanne, thank you so much to you and all the Community Living
staff for all that you do. We so appreciate you. Thanks bye for now.

Thank you Yvonne and Suzanne! Love that we are thinking about those who may live with challenges as a priority, but also recognizing that everyone is facing disruption right now. A simple call, zoom, skype or drive by can be all that it takes to make someone feel as though they belong.

Thank you, Pete, for all you do with the GenWell Project to share this message with the world. Seems that no matter who I am talking to these days, your wonderful human connection movement comes into the conversation. Reach out to Just One More!!! xxoo

Hi Yvonne, Thank you and Suzanne for reminding us that a small effort can mean so much to our friends and neighbours who may be alone and in need of human kindness. I occasionally Facetime and phone my Hospice clients whom I cannot visit during this difficult time. It means so much to them...and to me.

Hello my friend, thank you for your kind words. You are certainly someone who knows how to Just Show Up and make a difference. Those calls to Hospice clients would mean so much to them. Thank you for all that you do! xxoo

yes, thank you both. Every act of CARE and reaching out potentially "saves" someone, if only for a moment, maybe bridging them just for that moment of time to keep them going, supported, less isolated, and feel connected! Just Show Up with connection and care! yeah.

If every person realized how great an impact they can make with a small act of kindness in the lives of others AND in their own life...Imagine. Just imagine. You must check out the GenWell Project. You will love them!!
