BC Office of the Seniors Advocates

The BC Seniors Advocate’s Residential Care Survey Project needs more volunteers in the northern region to help us achieve the goal of inviting the over 1000 residents who live in long term care facilities in the northern health regions to participate in a structured interview asking them about their experiences in their facilities.

All volunteers will be provided with one day of training on how to conduct the structured interview with residents and each will be required to commit to a minimum of 30 hours over a 6 to 8 week period. Interview shifts of between 2 and 3 hours each (normally Mon through Fri, morning and afternoon) are available for qualified and fully trained volunteers to self scheduled beginning in mid-October and running straight through to the end of November/early December.

Volunteers can apply ASAP on-line at www.surveybcseniors.org – and select Northern Region. For information, email Judy at jbrown17@providencehealth.bc.ca.
