Kathleen has been contacted by someone doing research on stroke survivors. She requested we share an introduction with you, and the board accepted her request.

Smart Move continues to support Oceanside Stroke Recovery Society at their new location in Parksville. June Wood donates a portion of all items sold in the store. She also invites her clients to donate their potion of their sold items to OSRS. These donations are used to cover the cost of our therapy programs.
Smart Move offers their clients hand sanitizer, and masks are mandatory. There are a variety of locally made masks for sale if someone is looking for extra reusable or washable masks. The new store is large and can accommodate up to 20 people at a time. June is very cautious regarding customers coming into the store. Not only for client safety, but for the safety of staff, volunteers and herself.
Check out Smart Move’s new location at #149 Alberni Highway in downtown Parksville!
Open Tuesday to Saturday. Hours 10 am to 4 pm
OSRS members are grateful for Smart Move’s fundraising efforts.
November came and went with: Flu shots, exercises, and paintings, oh my!
Special thanks to everyone for doing such a great job following the Covid Safety Measures! We’re living through a stressful time, and these extra precautions not only keep us safe, but they allow us to more easily enjoy the therapy sessions!
December’s Morning and Afternoon Schedules are up on the site and available here.
The flu shot clinic went off without a hitch. Many Thanks to MJ for taking some splendid pictures of it (although Rick doesn’t appear to be enjoying himself ;).

The dust appears to be settling with our transition back indoors. Each session went remarkably well! Attached is a gallery of pictures from a number of the sessions, and a few images MJ took from June’s new location!
Over the last week, a team of OSRS members have been helping June Wood move her business to downtown Parksville. Survivors, caregivers, therapist and coordinators have packed up the old location and then unpacked boxes and helped set up at the new Smart Move location.
Smart Move Services Ltd. will reopen Wednesday, November 4 at 149 Alberni Highway in Parksville (across from Naked Naturals).
The new location hours will be:
Wednesday to Friday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Saturday 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
CLOSED Sunday, Monday and Tuesday
June Wood has been an OSRS supporter in many ways over the last five years. June sets aside a portion of her earnings for Oceanside Stroke Recovery as well as donates many of the wonderful prizes for our fundraising Christmas event. Also, Smart Move covers the cost of our website!
