The Campbell River Senior Peer Counselling program has been running for more than four years, supporting seniors in our community.
They are in need of volunteers, seniors aged 55 and older, who are willing to take a four-day training course and then devote approximately one hour a week visiting a senior who needs emotional support, and attend two monthly meetings on a variety of interesting educational topics. Volunteers find the work meaningful and educational. Training will be happening in May. Men and women who are interested in volunteering are invited to call Carol at 250-287-3044 for an interview or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you know anyone who is over 55 and who may be having trouble dealing with challenges, such as loneliness, depression, or bereavement? A Senior Peer Counsellor is a senior who is trained as a volunteer to provide support and guidance. This service is free and all information is kept confidential. This program is for men and women. Call 250-287-3044.
