Better at Home volunteers are making a difference in seniors’ lives
To celebrate National Volunteer Week and to honour Better at Home volunteers for the amazing work they do, here is a story of how our volunteers are changing seniors' lives:
Bridging the divide: Better at Home supporting diverse seniors in Burnaby
It is our belief that with the right people, perseverance and patience, there is the opportunity for a positive outcome in any situation. We truly believe that had the community not all pulled together to help Roya, she would have most certainly fallen between the cracks.
Maple Ridge Better at Home is supporting seniors’ independence
Simple transportation is a steady roadblock and many B.C. seniors don’t know where to turn to get help. It’s all the more challenging in a quaint yet widespread area, like Maple Ridge and its surrounding communities. This persistent problem also endures throughout the province, yet Better at Home’s volunteer transportation efforts aim to support seniors’ independence.
Castlegar Better at Home gives personal attention to its clients
In Castlegar, we do our best to provide our services in a personal, efficient and consistent way. We believe that by connecting our clients with only one or two service providers, we foster trusting and productive relationships between clients and the Better at Home team.
Quesnel Better at Home - Allan the Wonderful!
Allan is an inspiration and a true testament of someone who has stepped outside his comfort zone to help other people. In the process, he has found a place for himself in the hearts of the many seniors he helps on a weekly basis.
Innovative partnerships help seniors and build friendships
The unique partnerships built within the walls of South Surrey/White Rock Better at Home not only focus on providing excellent service for seniors, they also create lasting community relationships.
