  • Neighbour Relationships

    This month I have been thinking a lot about the different relationships neighbours have. Some neighbours become friends. Some neighbours remain respectful but don’t share too much about themselves. Some neighbours bring a welcome gift for people who move to the block. Other neighbours are related.

    I am curious what type of relationship you have with your neighbours and what is your ideal neighbour relationship?

    11 Feb 2021

    February 17 is Random Acts of Kindness Day...what are some ways we can express kindness (in a COVID safe way) on our streets and in our neighbourhoods?

    Here are a few examples to get us started:

    • Send a letter or card to someone on your block or in your neighbourhood
    • Wave hello to your neighbours
    • Check on any neighbours that you haven’t seen in a while

  • Introduce yourself

    18 Jan 2021

    One of the ways we can use this online space is to share and discuss ideas about neighbouring and connecting. With the COVID-19 pandemic and many social ties moving to an online (including the Neighbour Network) it is more challenging to get to know each other.

    We can get to know each other if we introduce ourselves. Maybe we can start with:

    - your name

    - how long have you lived in Spruce Grove?

    - why do you think it is good to know your neighbours?

    During the winter months, we have to be intentional about connecting with our neighbours.

    Help a senior on your block

    Register for SeniorConnect Tri-Region, a free online training program that teaches participants about how to provide support and connect with their aging neighbours.

    This is an excellent opportunity for us to work together to help seniors in our community find local information, resources and support.

    It is made up of six online training modules that will each take between 15 and 40 minutes to complete.

    Module topics include:

    • Why connecting with seniors is important
    • Caregiver burnout
    • Mental illness (dementia, delirium and depression)
    • Elder abuse
    • Addictions
    • Diversity

    During these challenging times it is important to find ways to be good neighbours to one another and look for opportunities to provide assistance and support to seniors where you can and when it is safe to do so. You may consider the following services, for example, that don't involve physical contact:

    • Delivering groceries or medical supplies
    • Shoveling the walk
    • A friendly chat on the phone

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

    Halloween is a wonderful time of year to meet your neighbours. Trick or treating provides the opportunity to interact and engage with your neighbours. With COVID-19, this year’s Halloween may look a little different but there are still opportunities to celebrate and meet your neighbours.

    What are you doing on your block for Halloween this year?
