Access 5 Stairs

A member has completed the repairs to the stairs at Access 5. Thank you!! The only thing that remains to be done is clearing sand off the stairs.

Does anyone have time and energy to spend outdoors on the beach moving sand? Maybe with children in the house with time and energy to burn?

It’s calling for sun and double digits today.

You could let Bill know at Bill@hwca.hwca. Or just go ahead and enjoy.

Phone in Health Resources

Thank you to Linda Seyler for sharing:



Get medical advice: Telehealth Ontario

Telehealth Ontario is a free, confidential service you can call to get health advice or information. A Registered Nurse will take your call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Telehealth Ontario is only offered over the phone. Email advice is not available.

How it works

When you call, a Registered Nurse will ask you to answer questions so they can assess your health problem and give you advice.

Telehealth Ontario nurses will not diagnose your illness or give you medicine. They will direct you to the most appropriate level of care or may put you in contact with a health professional who can advise you on your next steps.

The nurse will help you decide whether to:

  • handle a problem yourself
  • visit your doctor or nurse practitioner
  • go to a clinic
  • contact a community service
  • go to a hospital emergency room

Grocery Shopping Update Update

Hello again

Several of you sent me notes or comments so I have more Grocery Shopping tips to share. More comments welcome!

Whole Pig tips from Barb Smits

The Whole Pig, the farm just past Dashwood on 83, has a website and lists all their products. Teresa Van Ray has been wonderful  – I email my order, then she calls so I can pay by credit card and tells me when she will be delivering. As we are still in self isolation, I left a cooler on the front porch and she put the items in. These are only pork products but the best quality and a large variety of items. Like Hayters, it is nice to support our local community.

PC Express App from Ken

With the PC Express App it’s possible to place orders at No Frills stores and other Weston stores like Loblaws, Valumart and more. Sadly our Grand Bend store is not participating. The participating stores closest to us are the Independent in Exeter and the Valumart in Mitchell. One benefit – I was able to tell family members in Guelph and Toronto about it. You should check it out.

Shoppers Drug Mart

You can place an order for pickup if you call the store. They will take the order over the phone. It’s not advertised. I called the store and asked. They will wheel out the buggy and let you pick up the bags. You would pay for the purchase over the phone with a credit card.

So that’s it for now. Let me know if you have tips to share.
