Volunteers are an essential part of the team at Better Living. Through their generous commitment of time, we are able to deliver essential services that promote dignity, independence, and quality of life for adults and seniors in our community.

  • Be part of a dedicated team
  • Learn new skills
  • Experience both personal and professional development
  • Build a network of friends and professional contacts
  • Be recognized and appreciated for your contribution
  • Experience the satisfaction of giving back to your community

Volunteers are a significant part of the Better Living team, delivering essential services such as Meals on Wheels, Hospice Care and Companionship Visiting, Adult Day Program Support, Recreational Program Assistants, food preparation and customer service in the Better Bistro, and front desk reception and administrative support. Every role compliments the others and enables seniors to live actively, independently and with dignity. YOU could be the difference.

Our monthly newsletter has detailed information about online and professional training for volunteers, Better Living updates, interactive bingo for our Facebook friends, and more.

Sincere thanks to Hester Riches for her incredible patience and dedication to making this happen, to Moses Velasquez our amazing graphic and web designer, and to our Senior Management team for their support and contributions.

This is a work in progress, and we would love your help for future editions.  Please feel free to contribute articles, ideas, photographs, opportunities and especially stories or testimonials.  The goal is to connect volunteers not only to information, but also to each other and to the whole scope of Better Living.  We welcome your ideas and your feedback.
