Notably, I will develop a particular case management plan when a woman describes her feeling of disconnect from her culture and traditions and that she would like to talk to an elder. Firstly, I will tell her that I understand how much her sense of detachment from her culture bothers her. Additionally, I will explain that it will not be challenging to find an elder from her culture because Canada is a multinational country.
The second step is to clarify what culture she is interested in to reconnect to the traditions. Effectively, together with the woman, we will look for communities on Facebook to find acquaintances and maybe even friends from her culture and engage in communication with them. Ultimately, I will show her several community resources and organizations in Canada that may help solve her issue.
For instance, the Centre for Immigrant and Community Services (CICS) would help establish a connection to her culture. CICS’s Community and Volunteer Engagement program will be beneficial to the woman because it assists in fulfilling the needs of immigrants and connecting people to their communities. The program recruits and links newcomers and other community members with volunteer opportunities, giving them valuable ways to communicate with their communities while building practical skills, expertise, and connections.
Notably, CICS’s Community and Volunteer Engagement program assists in forming collaborations, gathering people, reducing isolation and loneliness, forming social and professional connectivity, and providing volunteers with the experience and connections required to advance their career opportunities in Canada. Another organization that may be useful for her is Polycultural Immigrant and Community Services, which also assists in connecting to your community in Canada. Therefore, she will meet many people from her culture and learn more about it.
