Gaia’s volunteer training workshop last session ended on July 8th and over 20 participants are awarded with certificate of completion. All our volunteers enjoyed the opportunity to visit and play with the seniors at Golden Age Court. We are counting on them to deliver more volunteer services to the seniors in the future.
BC Registered Nurse, Isabella Yeung is invited to share some common health issues by seniors including mental and physical area during our 3rd Volunteer Training Workshop. We are also grateful to Richmond Councillor Chak Au who came to share his volunteer experience.
Gaia Care feels honoured to have Mr. Henry Yao MLA for Richmond South Centre sharing his views on being a volunteer in Canada at our second session of the volunteer training workshop. He later presented the appreciation certificates to Gaia ‘s volunteers for their contribution in 2023. We would also like to give our special thanks to Fairchild TV, MingPao and SingTao for reporting our latest survey and key recommendations to the local health authorities about fall prevention among seniors in Greater Vancouver.
