You may be interested in a connection with Mary, a 85 year old woman who loves her pet dogs and has many stories to share about travel and her very interesting life. In the past Mary was an Art teacher, these days Mary enjoys spending time in her garden, playing with her dogs, and acrylic painting. Connecting with *Mary may involve visiting her at home, a chat over the phone, meeting for coffee and/or sharing a skill. It might involve checking out what’s on offer at a local Neighbourhood centre, library or an activity of interest.
We offer opportunities in skill and knowledge development, as well as ongoing support and mentoring. Good communication skills and the ability to work independently are a must. Having a driver’s license/access to own vehicle is highly desired but not essential We value diversity in lived experience, language, skills and abilities.
