Long -Term Care Survey Project | Positions Available: 10

The Office of the Seniors Advocate is looking for volunteers to support a project that would see all 29,000+ residents in BC's publicly funded long-term care homes surveyed about their quality of life. The goal is to make improvements for them, both locally and provincially. Volunteers with the project will visit residents in long term care facilities to ask their opinion, listen to their stories, and brighten their day! They will enter each care home to conduct in-person, structured interviews with the residents between now and the end of April. This is a chance to listen to some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. This project is an initiative of the BC Office of the Seniors Advocate, an independent office of the government that monitors issues of concern to seniors in our province. The survey is being conducted by trained volunteers in every community, under the direction of the Office of Patient-Centred Measurement. This is a quality improvement survey for long-term care, and not a for-profit project. We are seeking volunteers to conduct the surveys in Kamloops between now and the end of March.

We’re giving every senior in long-term care in the province the chance to have a visitor and a voice. Volunteer to brighten their days, listen to their stories, and give back to your community. You will be trained to conduct an in-person, standardized interview with the residents about their quality of life. Questions cover topics including food and meals, privacy, safety, staff responsiveness, visits with family and friends, activities, and more. This is a chance to see inside long-term care, brighten the lives of your local seniors, and know that you’ve been part of improving the future of long-term care in BC. Volunteers should apply online at: https://surveybcseniors.org/volunteer/ We ask for a minimum commitment of 40 hours over the course of 6-8 weeks, inclusive of training.
