Seniors' Information and Resource Centre (SIRC)
Metchosin Seniors Association (MSA) operating as SIRC – Seniors' Information and Resource Centre.
SIRC is a Better at Home agency, run by a team of volunteers, dedicated to helping senior's and their families with support, connections and services to ensure that individuals can remain independent at home, for as long as possible. Better at Home is funded by the Government of BC and managed by the United Way.
SIRC's Support and Services:
- Driving volunteers will pick-up and deliver local seniors to medical appointments, grocery shopping, errands, and outings in the community.
- Companionship team members spend time with seniors either on the phone, or in person -perhaps hosting our weekly tea, providing friendly check-ins, or joining seniors on "drive & dine" meals or outings.
- Geeks provide technology support to seniors who want to tackle challenges with devices and learn how to use computers to become better connected.
Programs and Events take place throughout the year and we can always use a few more helping hands at SIRC with day-to-day operations, projects, website and office administration.
SIRC welcomes volunteers of all ages throughout the year! Bring your talents and spend some time helping us to help others.
