Volunteer Interviewers Needed for Senior's Advocate
If you are impressed by Isobel Mackenzie, BC’s Seniors Advocate, and want to support her work to improve housing conditions for BC's Seniors, we have an opportunity for you.
The BC's Seniors Advocate is seeking Volunteer Interviewers to collect information from seniors living in residential care about their experiences. Interviews are being conducted from May to November 2016.
Volunteer interviewers will survey 27,000 British Columbia seniors and their families to get first-hand feedback on the quality of their residential care and accommodations. The results from this survey will give residents and their families a voice. They will provide a road map for improvement of the quality of care and services provided to residents and their families in residential care.
