ESCORTED TRANSPORTATION

We dispatch volunteer drivers to pick-up seniors from their home, drive them to medical appointments, stay with them throughout, and take them home again. 

SHOPPING COMPANION

We match a senior with a volunteer who takes them shopping once every two weeks. In addition to the shopping, this program has the added benefit of social connection. 

FRIENDLY

VISITING

We match a senior with a volunteer who will visit weekly and/or take the senior on social outings. 

PET

ASSIST

We match a senior with a volunteer who will provide assistance with pet care, aiming to keep both the senior and pet healthy and together as long as possible. 

PRACTICAL KINDNESS

We arrange for Quick Mobilize Volunteers to provide urgent one-time or short term social assistance. 

PHONE

FRIENDS

We match a senior with a volunteer who will call     2-3 times per week to provide a wellness check and social connection. 

CARING COMPANION

We match a senior care recipient with a volunteer who will provide weekly companionship for the senior, while also allowing the caregiver to take a break for themselves. 

SENIORS CONNECTING SENIORS

Culturally diverse seniors will create connections between community members and The Way In Network so that seniors in Calgary can access the services and benefits they need.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Volunteers benefit from the relationships they build with the wonderful seniors they meet through our programs!

 

We provide:

  • Volunteer training

  • Personalized volunteer appreciation 

  • Awards for outstanding volunteer contributions 

Although all of our positions have slightly different requirements, it is necessary that all of our volunteers be 18 years or older, as we require all individuals to complete a Police Information Check.
