A Guide to LCA Virtual Groups and Drop-in Hours

LCA News and Information
Lake Country Associates Virtual Group Meetings Phone

by RJ Wattenhofer

Whether you are a person who has attended LCA Cottage groups and drop-in hours in the past or are a first-timer, this guide will show you how to connect virtually through computer or phone so you can begin participating and expand your social support network.

Trying something new can be intimidating and so if you do not feel comfortable “jumping right in” you have the option of turning off your video and entering the Zoom room with a black screen (see picture) which will give you the opportunity to simply look around until you feel ready to participate.

The first step is to download and install the “Zoom Cloud Meetings” app. You can find this in your phone’s app store.

The second and final step is to find available days and times of groups and drop-in hours.
