Volunteer Reflections from the Fraser Region
Volunteers are what fuels the BC Office of the Seniors Advocate’s Long-Term Care Survey. We asked some of volunteers in the Fraser Valley why they answered the call for Volunteer Surveyors:
“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.)
