Services for Seniors
Programs have been developed to support the needs of housebound seniors enabling them to live independently. If you are a senior, over 65 and residing in Burnaby in need of our services, please contact us.
Programs for Seniors
A volunteer will call on Sundays to take your order and do your shopping at the Safeway on Willingdon and Hastings St.. You must be available all day Tuesday to receive your delivery of groceries from Safeway and pay by credit card or Safeway card.
A volunteer provides companionship for you through regular ongoing visits.
Volunteer Phone Buddy
A volunteer will call weekly to chat and check on your wellbeing.
Volunteer Shopping Buddy
Visit Brentwood or Lougheed Town Centre on Mondays or Metrotown on Thursdays. A volunteer will meet you and assist with your shopping and banking needs or to have a coffee and visit. Free wheelchairs are available if you need help getting around. Staff will arrange for HandyDART to get you to and from the mall.
Gadabout Bus Trips
These are monthly outings with seniors in which volunteers will drive you to and from the bus and accompany you on a three hour outing. Staff have First Aid Training.
Enjoy a tasty lunch on Thursdays at Confederation Centre and make new friends at this volunteer hosted event. A volunteer driver will pick you up and take you home after the luncheon. Clients pay for their lunch.
