Working with RCs and CCs
I'm still working on the flowcharts and documents for Monday's Meeting (and realised my print catridge is out of ink at the same time!).
While working on this, I was thinking about what Rebecca and I have been talking about of late. Instead of just working with the TCs, it's a good idea for caregivers to also get involved with the RCs and even the community centres.
More than one caregiver I know takes part in RC activities. This doesn't mean of course that she ONLY handles cat issues - but because she is there, the RC is aware of what TNRM is all about and is more than willing to listen. They also know her and know that she is very responsible so they have a cat programme which is 'run' by her. In another RC, a cat cafe was mooted because the residents there are willing to do cat management.
One of the community centres even had a cat club set up and this meant that the caregivers could use the centre for their activities.
