Volunteer Reflections from the Fraser Region
Volunteers are what fuels the BC Office of the Seniors Advocate’s Residential Care Survey. We asked some of volunteers in the Fraser Valley why they answered the call for Volunteer Interviewers:
“We should all get involved and work together to help improve the quality and condition of our long-term care facilities. Our family members and friends may one day require the support provided in these facilities. The most important thing I took away from the training was a new found awareness of the living conditions in a long-term care facility. I used to think of the facility as a hospital, but now I understand that it is also a home for the residents.” (Amarpreet P.)
“If people are dealing with problems of their own, as I am, it feels very good to help others, in turn it helps you take your mind off your own problems. I am impressed with the behind the scenes work that has been put into the survey and I am looking forward to meeting and volunteering with like minded people. I am very proud to tell them that I am volunteering with the Office of Seniors Advocate.” (Norma C.)
