Seniors Serving Seniors - Return to Health
Seniors Serving Seniors - Return to Health

Healthcare professionals from Island Health (South) refer frail seniors transitioning to/from hospital to the program.  On receiving a referral, the Community Services Coordinator will meet with the client and match them with a specially trained Return to Health Volunteer. 


Volunteers provide social support, encouragement, and connections to community resources. These volunteers receive specialized training in seniors’ issues, stressing good communication skills and familiarity with the ageing process. The initial 15 hours of training are normally given each Spring (currently, training is being provided online and is more compressed). In addition, volunteers receive ongoing support at monthly meetings. The purpose of these meetings is for further education and connection to other volunteers.

Cancer/stem cell research
Cancer/stem cell research

On June 21st, 2018, my life took a major change when I was unexpectedly diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, an aggressive form of blood cancer. I was 27 years old, 5 years married to the love of my life, launching into my career in construction management, and enjoying life in my adopted community of Red Deer, Alberta. The journey that followed over the next 18 months would be a life-changing roller-coaster of upheaval, challenge, and trauma – but also love, growth, faith, humour, learning, and finding ways to give back. From the start of my battle with cancer, I endeavoured to record the journey online, both as a means of keeping friends and family in the loop, and also helping others to understand a first-hand glimpse into the life of a young adult cancer patient.
