Small Focus Group Volunteers Needed – End of Life Planning

SMALL FOCUS GROUP – END OF LIFE PLANNING

NBRC is looking for volunteers to be a part of a small focus group to discuss end of life planning and related issues.

  • Have you given some thought to end of life planning?
  • Have you thought through an advanced directive?
  • Do you want to talk through these issues with a small group? Your participation is critical in developing sound guidance to help us all navigate, plan and assist our population through this chapter of life in the future.
    • The commitment is very time limited.
      • The focus group plans to have two, 2-hour sessions held at the North Bay Regional Center Napa office – 610 Airpark Road, Napa Ca, 94558
      • Meetings will start by next week, 1/13/2020
    • We encourage participation from under-represented groups, including ethnic and religious minorities.

Dr. Mahajan is a part of a larger group of Regional Center clinicians who are working to formulate recommendations that will be submitted to Regional Center Executive Directors and eventually to DDS.

Please e-mail Dr. Mahajan directly, gmahajan@nbrc.net, with names and/or if you are interested in participating in this very important process.

Thank you.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS OPPORTUNITY FUND

BOARD OF DIRECTORS OPPORTUNITY FUND

The North Bay Regional Center Board of Directors Opportunity Fund consists of donations from outside entities, staff donations and other donations from the community to assist people with developmental disabilities.

Doug Cleveland, a past Director of Client Services at NBRC developed the Board Opportunity Fund when he and his wife held a fund raising event for its initial donation.  Some examples of services paid through the opportunity fund include client funeral expenses, rent, social and recreational activities, food, clothing, etc.

In addition to helping clients with basic needs the Board Opportunity Fund also allows NBRC’s clients to enjoy and participate in activities NBRC cannot fund such as swimming, summer camps, horseback riding, and other adventures.  The fund also provides funding for medical support not covered by Medi-Cal or NBRC such as specialized health monitors, dental care, and wheelchairs adapted for specific needs.

For NBRC clients striving to live independently for the first time, the Board Opportunity Fund provides resources for them to obtain their own residence.

The NBRC Board Opportunity Fund is a worthwhile benefit that assists clients and families served by NBRC to experience a full range of support, activities and progress in their lives.  Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.

Donations can be made to:

NBRC Presents Performance Contract Plan for 2019 – Sept 5th

Public Meeting to Review 2019 Performance Plan

 

Wed, September 5, 2018

 5-7 pm

Board Room

North Bay Regional Center 610 Airpark Way

Napa, CA 94558

 

North Bay Regional Center wants to make sure that we are continuously improving. We strive to exceed our mission, desired outcomes, and that we are in compliance with all requirements.

 

The NBRC Performance Plan measures our ongoing performance on desired statewide outcomes, and compares North Bay Regional Center’s performance with the statewide average for all 21 regional centers in California. These desired outcomes reflect the state’s public policy direction for developmental services in the community.

 

We continue to fulfill all planned activities with the intent of improving outcomes as directed by our community members, Board of Directors, and NBRC staff.

 

How do we implement this plan?

We are continuing activities from this year and prior years, such as the continued development of licensed homes, day activities, family support and training and more in 2018/19, such as:

 

  • Support for clients to move from State Developmental Centers to homes in the community
  • Support for children to live with families (their own family, foster family, or with a guardian)
  • Support for adults to live in home environments (in their own home with or without supported living services as needed, with their family)
  • Coordination of employment preparation and training, job development, and ongoing support for adults to find and maintain

 

You are invited to hear a presentation of our proposed plan and provide your input. We will present the plan and listen to your comments during the Public Meeting of the NBRC Board of Directors on September 5, 2018.
