Senior and Caregiver Support

We believe in a connected and caring community where people actively care for one another. We recognize that seniors and caregivers play a crucial role in our families and our community, and we provide services that enhance their well being.

COVID-19 Agency Update:  We are open, operational, and providing support and services across our North Shore communities.  In response to government recommendations and direction from health officials we have adapted support and program delivery from in-person to virtual.  Please contact our Program Manager for additional information, Robin Rivers by email or phone at 604-988-5281 ext. 354.



If you are a senior or a caregiver who is struggling with isolation, anxiety, depression, loss, life transition, or abuse, or if you need help managing your emotions or next steps in your life, our Registered Clinical Counsellor can help.  Contact us to get started. 

Volunteer Caring Connections for Seniors

Our dedicated and experienced volunteers provide individual support for seniors living with chronic or terminal illness, via phone or online meeting platform. Contact us for individual support.

Walking Companionship and Porch Visits

If you are a caregiver or a senior living with a life-limiting or chronic illness our volunteers will provide you with care and support through walking companionship and porch visits.  To learn more and arrange support contact us.

Caregivers Connect Programs

We know caring for an aging family member or friend requires time, commitment, and compassion.  We also know caregiving can be stressful.  We provide free support, resources, and referrals for family and friends caring for older adults who live at home.  Drop in for conversation, workshops, relaxation sessions, and counselling at four locations.  Click here for details.
