Candle Lake - Alive and Well,  a Candle Lake Health Services Project 2024 

Communities create Health and Wellness 

The Candle Lake Health Services Committee holds a firm conviction that Candle Lake is endowed with innovative ideas, valuable resources, and an unwavering collective determination to extensively contribute to the provision of local health services that support the community. The Committees aim to uncover the countless ways in which we can actively participate in the delivery of health services. 

Read about the whole project here - Candle Lake - Alive and Well

Our action plan starts by identifying the community health needs and resources. 

In March, we invited 40 Candle Lake residents to 2-hour Focus Group sessions as part of Phase 1 of our survey. We brainstormed for information about health and wellness in our community. We asked - What services do we use? What works well? Are there barriers and challenges to accessing health services, and what do we want for the future?  The ideas flowed from the participants.  What we heard was not surprising.   

What We Heard Report

We have partnered with the Saskatchewan Health Quality Council who will work with us providing consultative guidance in this innovative project. Together we can discover a multitude of small changes that may make a major impact on health and wellness in our rural community.    

 


Our Health Services Project – “Candle Lake - Alive and Well” is Making Connections. 

Four Candle Lake Health Services committee members, the Mayor and our Resort Village of Candle Lake Administrative representative were invited to attend the Health Quality Council’s Thrive at Home Workshop: Re-Envisioning Community Supports for Older Adults held in Saskatoon on April 29th. 

The aim of the conference was to strengthen and improve community-based care and services that enable older adults to “thrive at home” and age where they choose. It seems many people choose Candle Lake to do just that. Our intent is to find ways to assist our community to provide new local services and continue to care for each other.

We presented our initiative, “Candle Lake Alive and Well” and joined in discussions with Saskatchewan people representing the Saskatchewan Health Authority, provincial service agencies, service providers and seniors. We were given many ideas and are now linked to resources from around the province. Read “Emerging Insights,” a report from the Thrive at Home conference.   

Seniors are just one focus of our “Alive and Well” project. Watch for the full confidential Candle Lake community health survey that will be launched soon. Everyone has a voice. Please take the time to complete the survey and provide us with meaningful answers. With clear community information we can identify the priority needs of the whole community and collaborate with you, and all of our stakeholders, to address them. We need everyone’s wisdom for the wisest results. 

Thank you in advance!
