    Health – CRPCN Update: 

    Clinics: Please be aware of the CRPCN Clinics in Chestermere.  The Primary Care Network (PCN) is a Not for Profit, under Alberta Health, that focusses on optimal health in our community. They operate separately but integratively alongside Alberta Health Services to improve your health journey by facilitating comprehensive and coordinated team-based care in the community. Chestermere is included in Calgary Rural Primary Care Network (CRPCN)

    When your Family Doctor chooses to be attached to one of the 42 PCN’s in Alberta, many supports including professional support Teams come with that, and these services are offered to you, free of charge, through your PCN Family Doctor.

    This team of professionals consists of Physicians and Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Diabetic Nurses, Dietician, Exercise Specialist, Foot Care, Counselling and Community Development. 

    In Chestermere currently we have a new CRPCN Office/Clinic operating in Rainbow Falls known as Reflections.

    Armchair Travel 

    Armchair Travel is one of the most wonderful ways to look into our fantastic, vast world and learn as much as our hearts desire. We can travel to some of our favourite places without leaving home.  Through videos, pod casts, books and music and numerous other ways, we can go to places we have never seen, or only ever dreamed of. This way of travelling is a delightful pastime and is good for the imagination and soul. This form of travel at it’s best, makes us want to go and see for ourselves. After all we are curious individuals and have a thirst for knowledge!

    Enjoy sensory and magical experiences as we travel back in time or across the globe, take a trip down memory lane and many more exhilarating moments that will make you smile and fulfill your heart.

    Ready? Let’s jump into Spring, a season of new beginnings and growth. The rebirth of nature, warmer weather and increased hours of daylight. The first blooms of the season begin to appear, tulips and daffodils bringing colour to our lives. Trees wake up from a long winters nap, the appearance of buds ready to burst into lush greenery and offer us a protective canopy of shade, for the hot summer months to come. Now is the time to start planning outdoor activities, maybe a new sport, or that longed for flower and vegetable garden.  Let’s awaken our senses and experience our Spring landscapes.

    To prepare for our trip, please follow the steps for a relaxing journey. Step 1 – Pour yourself a cup of tea or your favourite tipple, Step 2- kick off your shoes, Step 3 – pull up a comfy chair, ready? let’s go!
