Housing Chat with DSO Housing Navigator / DANEO – June 14, 2022

Paul McIntyre is a member of the Ottawa chapter of the Mental Illness Caregivers Association (MICA). Paul has been working with other families and local agencies on a support model for individuals with mental health challenges to live independently in community. There are many similarities in conversations across caregiver groups looking after a family member with high or challenging support needs. We will explore Paul’s model and discover those similarities (property management, crisis management, knowledge sharing, etc.) and the solutions he proposes.
