Pam Willis - Comox Valley Senior Support Society

Comox Valley Senior Peer Support provides emotional support to Comox Valley seniors who are experiencing isolation, loneliness, and depression, or who are feeling vulnerable due to challenging situations they face or endure. We do this through the programs we offer: Friendly Visiting, Caregiver Support, Senior Information and Access Support (SIAS), Transit Information and Access Support (Transit Ambassador).  We use a ‘peer support’ approach. Our volunteers are all seniors themselves who come from a variety of backgrounds. We work within a non-clinical framework, approaching the people we support as equals. Respect, trust, practical support and confidentiality are hallmarks of our work.
