Volunteers needed for BC Meals and BC Visits
By Shiraz Alikhan
The Wellness Collaborative hosted a Volunteer Forum on June 3 followed by a reception to thank the Collaborative volunteers for their efforts. These forums are held quarterly to provide an opportunity to share information with volunteers, hear from clients and volunteers about their experiences, and get feedback about what’s working well and ideas for improvement.
At this forum, two clients gave touching accounts about how BC Visits had helped them by giving respite from their caregiver responsibilities. Two BC Rides volunteers also discussed their experiences in providing clients with rides to medical appointments.
The next Volunteer Forum is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. to noon on Friday, August 26, in Mountains Grille at the Clubhouse. Since more volunteers are currently needed for the BC Meals and BC Visits programs, a training session focusing on these areas has been scheduled for 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Friday, August 12, in the Club Room at the Clubhouse.
