The Point Roberts Circle of Care annual general meeting


The Point Roberts Circle of Care annual general meeting was held on April 9 at the Benson Road fire hall.

A primary goal of Circle of Care is to connect Point Roberts residents with volunteer services to help allow them to remain in their home and in the community, for as long as possible. Board president Galen Wood described that over the past year, 38 volunteers and board members have donated over 1,000 hours preparaing and delivering meals, taking residents to medical appointments, picking up prescriptions, delivering groceries, providing short term pet care, and relief for primary care givers.

Based on responses to the organization’s community surveys, the board has a vision to build a care center on the Point that could include short term rehabilitation and memory care. The CEO of the Green House Project, a not-for-profit organization that partners with local communities to create elder care homes, will be visiting Point Roberts in early summer. The Green House Project partners with “organizations, advocates and communities to lead the transformation of institutional long-term and post-acute care by creating viable homes that demonstrate more powerful, meaningful, and satisfying lives, works, and relationships,” according to their website.

Point Roberts fire chief Christopher Carleton was the featured speaker and after a recap of the Covid-19 testing and vaccine clinics performed over the past two years. Carleton received a standing ovation.
