Elderly Help – Going from “Me” to “We” will Change the Communities We Live in

Providing help for the Elderly is very rewarding. At B Cared For we look at our company as an entity in the community we work. Though we are a for-profit organization we also recognize that sometimes help will need to come from volunteers. We’d love to connect with you if you’re interested in volunteering in your community. Connecting with those who have difficulties making ends meet yet have a real need for a little help, support or care. This year we’ve volunteered over 300 hours in our communities. We’re challenging others to join in and change the way we act and live in our communities. Our goal is to enable 2012 or more volunteer hours over the next year.

“When we change our thinking from “ME” to ‘WE”, we’re changing the way we live, we’re changing the way we look at the communities we live in.”

B Cared For will facilitate the process of screening volunteers and applicant for eligibility. Providing the applicant with a level of trust and due diligence has been applied.

Elderly Care becoming a policy issue rapidly

Caring for the Elderly and providing the appropriate support or assistance in our society is becoming more and more difficult. The Vancouver Sun posted an interesting article on changing demographics and how it will challenge policy makers to ensure the elderly in our community are cared for appropriately.

“Older Canadians needing home care today are faced with a patchwork of services”

“Home care is at least 40 per cent cheaper to provide than institutional care”

B Cared For aims to provide community based care for those who need it by those who can provide. We’re working on a sustainable win-win situation where senior assistance stays affordable and equally important remains sustainable for those who provide this service.
