Family Advisory Committee

The Family Advisory Committee, a committee of the Far Northern Regional Center Board of Directors, was created to enhance the services currently received by our clients by engaging and involving our client's entire family in the process.

Family caregivers are often the best source of information critical to the success of our clients. They work tirelessly and lovingly with their family member and know whether the services we provide are meeting the needs of our clients.

We honor their efforts and want to empower the family with a means of communicating their concerns, hopes and dreams directly to the Board of Directors. We know that some of the best ideas come from outside. Help us help your loved one. We want to take full advantage of the collective feedback and turn our stakeholders into our shareholders.

Pedestrian Safety Awareness

Many consumers are exposed to traffic threats that challenge their experience and abilities. They may have difficulty judging speed, spatial relations, and distance. They may have developed a pattern of “following” staff without understanding or contributing to their own safety. This Pedestrian Safety Awareness sheet provides basic tips for improving pedestrian safety awareness and skills. FNRC recommends that all consumers in your care complete safety awareness training immediately.
