Gadabouts and Wheelers Bus Trips

 2019 Gadabouts Summer BBQ - 31

Citizen Support Services offers Gadabouts and Wheelers programs for those Burnaby residents who are feeling isolated and lonely and would like to go out with a group for an entertaining afternoon.

These trips are designed for housebound seniors who are over 65 and living independently in Burnaby. The outings provide socialization, a feeling of independence and an outreach to others in the community who are sharing similar life circumstances. HandyDART is used for all Wheelers outings and volunteer drivers are used to transport Gadabouts clients either to the location where the bus will be boarded or directly to the venue if it is not far from, or within Burnaby. Volunteers are on hand to assist and socialize.

Quotes & Testimonials

"Your service was a great value to Vera and contributed importantly to her being able to stay in her apartment for an additional number of years."

"I would like to express my sincere appreciation as a caregiver for the support I received from the two programs Ken was involved in. It became very difficult for me, as an elder myself, to look after Ken's medical appointments, food shopping and housekeeping. So, dear friends, at Better at Home and Citizen Support Services - a huge thank you."

"Thank you and all the awesome, dedicated volunteers for all the thoughtfulness, kindness and the warm, caring care. Your programs are very much needed, appreciated and gratefully acknowledged."
