Senior Support "Special Request" Program

900 Alder St., Campbell River, BC, V9W 2P6 [map]
1-4 hours / monthly
as long as you are able and interested
Caring members of the community can sign up to assist seniors who need a helping hand. 

Help would include simple typical “homeowner” tasks that most homeowners can do themselves, but seniors may find difficult.  For example, shoveling snow, mowing lawn, minor repairs. packing boxes, etc. 

Interested volunteers would undergo a screening process including police information check (vulnerable sector), reference checks, and 1 hour of virtual (video) training on senior support.

Following the screening and training, the program would run much like our Special Event Volunteer program.  When a need arises, volunteers would be sent the opportunity via email, and are able to respond to the opportunities that suit them, and simply ignore those that do not.  You only reply when you able to help.

Please note that referrals for seniors to access these supports come from our Senior Support Program or partner organizations.
