Health Update #11 with AFN Community Health Nurse

Update in Services:

Happy Tuesday Everyone,

I am now back in the Gold River Health Centre. I will be available Monday to Thursday from 8am to 4pm, by appointments only. At this time, there will be a strict no drop-in policy at this time. You can reach me by email: or by phone: 902-277-2297. Once you arrive at the office for your appointment hand sanitizer will be available to sanitize your hands or you may wash in the public bathroom available.

Beginning Thursday, July 16th, our child and youth mental health worker, Bryn will also be available, once a week. She will be available by appointment as well; she has openings and is available to take on new clients. You can call or email me, and Bryn will call you back to book your appointments.

Our adult mental health worker Shondalee, who is covering for Mike during his 1-year leave, is still available via telehealth, either by phone or video chat. Again, you can contact me and I will get you in touch with her, or you can contact her directly at 902-521-7158 (please leave a message), or email to book your new or follow-up appointments.

Continue to follow the AFN Community Health Facebook group for updates, programs, and contests. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we continue to navigate new normals and protocols through this pandemic.

As always, take care and wash your hands!
