The Dunbar Residents’ Association presents the Dunbar Cares Team in partnership with UBC Nursing and Vancity Dunbar Branch.
Join us in creating innovative community resources to support our most vulnerable seniors and their family caregivers who might need a helping hand.
How are your seniors doing? Have you noticed any support needs our new care team can provide? We want community organizers in and around the Dunbar area to connect with us for real-time solutions.
“It is the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) that those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.”
– Charles Darwin
Pair a local senior with a UBC Nursing student for phone check-ins. Offer yard or gardening help. Grocery and pharmacy pick-ups. Or, simply chat across the yard or porch.
To advise us of your insights and to learn more about how to join as a Partner Organization of the Dunbar Cares Team, call Andrea Sara at 604-833-6355 or email DunbarCares at dunbar-vancouver.org.
