Taking the time to ponder St. Joe’s future Renée Andor Black Press COMOX — St. Joseph’s General Hospital looks forward to realizing its new role in the Valley once VIHA’s new hospital

opens, according to president and CEO Jane Murphy. Now that property at North Island College (2300 Ryan Road) has been announced as the chosen site for the

new Comox Valley Hospital, Murphy said discussions surrounding the future of St. Joe’s are picking up speed — and she’s excited about what its future role may be. “Lots of people have

lots of ideas, which is really exciting, and over the next months and years, to have discussion and dialogue and form a plan around that, and talk to funding agencies, is all part of the work

we’ll be doing,” said Murphy. St. Joseph’s is owned and operated by the Diocese of Victoria through an affiliation

with the Vancouver Island Health Authority. Acute-care services at St. Joe’s are expected to transfer

to to the new hospital in 2017, which is the target completion date. And having this time to explore Cont. on Page 7

Post partum depression explained

Fishing 2X14 Corner with Don Daniels email: dond@campbellrivermirror.com In the month off May, halibut fishing was very good in the Campbell River area and near Courtenay at Kitty Coleman. There are fish being caught in the 80 to 200 pound range, but many anglers keep Chris Gauthier 183.5 pounder caught the smaller fish at the Hump. around 20 pounds. Spreader Bar with Bait, Mudrakers and Power Bait with jig heads are catching fish. Point Wilson Darts are catching bottom fish like lingcod and snapper and They are also used for catching salmon. For salmon, the usual hotspots are Browns Bay, The Hump and Lighthouse. Some nice catches are coming from Kitty Coleman. A lure that is very popular is the Tomic plug or spoon. On the West Coast, Gibran White got out fishing after May 11 and fished the areas that she wanted to get to. Due to changing weather patterns, the best fishing was out on the reef and some small feeders were caught. On the cleaning table, the salmon were full of small 5-inch needlefish. Anglers are trolling at an average depth of 85 to 110 feet of water. I had the opportunity to fish at Moutcha Bay Resort a few years back during the kayakfishing derby. Dent Island Lodge is hosting a fishing derby on June 15 and 16. The deadline to register is June 10. For information call Justin Farr 250-203-2553. The ant hatch is on and trout fishing has been outstanding at the local lakes in both Campbell River and Courtenay. I use a black fly number 12 or smaller and you can fish off shore using power bait . This year will be an excellent year to catch pinks in the Campbell River; pink, green or blue flies and lures will work when the action heats up.

Shelley, age 30, came to me with Post Partum depression. She was a first time mom with a sixmonth old baby and overwhelmed by the experience. She had difficulty with breast feeding to start but finally got the hang of it. She is sleep deprived and unable to find time for herself. Her husband works out of town so she is finding that she is experiencing not only depression, but anxiety. She feels guilty because she is beginning to resent the needs of the baby and is experiencing lack of interest in the baby, worrying about hurting the baby and lack of concern for herself. These are the reasons she is now seeking professional

and uninterrupted sleep. This included using homeopathic Rubimeds that help not only with anxiety and depression but also sleep. These remedies are safe with breast feeding. 3. Adrenal support: Pregnancy, delivery and breast feeding play havoc with the stress pathways in the body including the adrenal and thyroid glands. Adrenal support is addressed using the wonderful adaptogenic herb, Siberian Ginseng which is safe during breast feeding. I will have the mother take this herb for months to help with energy, stamina and well being. During pregnancy, moms will feel great because they are benefiting from the babies adrenal function but when they give birth this stops abruptly, contributing to post partum depression. 4. Optimize the

thyroid: TSH, T4 and T3 blood tests help me make sure the thyroid is getting the support it needs and I will treat the thyroid before many MD’s will, using effective herbal remedies to start. 5. Covering the basics: Preconception care and prenatal care that I cover with moms before they get pregnant and deliver really helps prevent post partum depression. Basic nutrients help most cases of depression. 6. Hormone balancing: Some women benefit from temporary progesterone supplementation to feel better but this can impact breast feeding so professional assessment is warranted. Risk factors for developing post partum depression are: having a prior history, stressful events during pregnancy or birth, and women with marital difficulties or general lack of social support.

Campbell River students take on city budget during Local Government Awareness Week As part of Local Government Awareness Week, more than 80 students from Carihi, Robron Centre and Timberline attended an afternoon presentation at City Hall on May 24 – and got a chance to allocate funds to City services. City staff representing different departments had one minute to sum up services provided to the community –

and request funding support. On behalf of the recreation department, Rachel Lim of Campbell River’s Youth Action Committee highlighted how local government services support Campbell River. Each student was given $700,000 in City Hall bucks to allocate to 10 departments, and in less than five minutes, students had voted with their cash.

St. Joes’: Seeking new roles for venerable facility

3x3.5

CAP IT

From Page 3 possibilities for the St. Joe’s site is a good thing, according to Murphy. “We do have the time, which is very nice, to step back and really understand the needs of the community,” Murphy said, adding there will be opportunity for community input during the decision process. “It really is about starting to look at the community and the demographics and the healthcare needs and start to identify potentially other roles that could be met by this site, because really there’s quite an infrastructure on this site.” Services related to seniors’ care are a need in the community

now and in the future, according to Murphy, and more residential beds and various support services to help seniors are potential uses of the space. There is “a whole continuum of services that our seniors need to support them, and some of it is day programs, some of it is residential care, a need for more respite care, bathing programs, it’s really a whole range of services, but certainly beds, residential care beds, yes, there will be a need,” said Murphy, adding these are just ideas right now and nothing is decided. Murphy noted VIHA is updating its residential bed plan for Vancouver Island, which should give a good idea of how many VIHA-funded residential beds are

planned for the Valley in the future. While she acknowledged St. Joe’s is waiting for word on this number, she said the hospital is proactively planning so it’s ready to submit a proposal if it decides to when VIHA wants to contract for these services. The 125 residential beds at the Views — Eagleview Manor and Oceanview Manor — will remain onsite, and renovations will be considered as part of the overall redevelopment of the St. Joe’s site. “One of the objectives would be to create more single rooms, which is becoming more of the standard, and that is something that we very much would look at,” Murphy added.

And St. Joe’s will continue in its partnership with the Comox Valley Hospice Society to add a 10bed hospice/palliative care residence to the Views. Murphy also said the transitional care unit of the hospital, which serves patients who are either returning home or moving into residential care, could be kept, though again, this idea is just something that’s being talked about around the hospital. “That’s a type of service that, you know, can be provided very well associated with residential care, so (there’s) potential to look at that as remaining on-site and becoming part of a range of services here at St. Joseph’s,” she explained.

Explore early childhood education Tour NIC with our new Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE) video, the first in a series of videos that let you discover new career paths, meet students, and tour facilities like never before. The Early Childhood Care & Education video takes you inside NIC’s Puntledge Hall as NIC students work with pre-school children to create games and provide healthy snacks. ECCE students practice parachute games as one of the many educational activities they learn for pre-school aged children. ECCE students practice parachute games as one of the many educational activities they learn for pre-school aged children. ECCE student Keosha Girrard designed a math fishing game for an in-class assignment. She’s playing the game with Azelia, a regular visitor from the nearby Beaufort Children’s Centre. ECCE student Keosha Girrard designed a math fishing game for an in-class assignment. She’s playing the game with Azelia, a regular visitor from the nearby Beaufort Children’s Centre. “Working with children is one of the most rewarding careers that you can have. Just being with them while they’re making discoveries

and learning is really exciting,” said ECCE student Lindsay Mallette. “I’ve been thinking about entering the program for a long time. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.” You’ll also meet children and employers from the Beaufort Children’s Centre, an independent child care provider on NIC’s Comox Valley campus. NIC students regularly invite children to their own classroom for unique learning opportunities, and complete work experience there throughout the year. “NIC students have the opportunity to work in either of the 3 to 5 year old age groups,” said Ocean Kneeland, Beaufort’s administrator. “Many

of those students become substitutes, or eventually staff, at the centre.” NIC’s certificate program trains a total of 40 new early childhood educators in the Comox Valley and Port Alberni to fill demand every year. In 2009, the British Columbia Wage and Salary Survey estimated 44 per cent of ECCE employers in the Vancouver Island/ Coastal region had unfilled vacancies. “All of our graduates who want to be working will be working in June,” said instructor Vlasta Grant. “There is a real shortage of child care workers in the Comox Valley.” The certificate program is available part-time or full-time

over 10 months in the Comox Valley and Port Alberni. Students gain applied knowledge and confidence, starting with fundamental child development, health and safety, and professional practice skills. Each term, they explore different work environments in practicum placements. Cont. on Page 13

North Island College is using video tours to give prospective students a look at programs like early childhood education.
