Senior and Caregiver Support
If you are a senior or caregiver struggling, our experienced counsellors can provide support.
If you are a North Shore senior with a low-income, our Christmas Bureau can help you through the holiday season.
Home visits and walking companionship
If you are a caregiver or a senior living with a life-limiting or chronic illness, our volunteers will ensure you have the care and support you need by providing you with in-home visits or walking companionship.
While these one-on-one home visits do not include help with housework or in-home tasks, they do offer support and companionship. A walking companion can also provide encouragement to get out for some fresh air and light exercise.
If you’re concerned about a loved one, interested in learning about the risk factors for social isolation, or wondering how you can support seniors in your community, our Allies in Aging website has fact sheets, training materials, effective outreach strategies, and information about transportation initiatives for seniors.
Allies in Aging is a collective impact program that aims to reduce social isolation among Metro Vancouver seniors aged 75+.
If you are a senior looking to become more connected and involved in our community by volunteering, we will work with you to find a role with us that fits your schedule, preferences, and goals.
