- “After several years of helping my elderly parents with their day to day needs, things changed very quickly when my father was abruptly struck with dementia. Now, all of a sudden, we found ourselves completely overwhelmed with the demands that my father’s health condition put on our family. We are so grateful to have the Meals on Wheels service in our community, and are very appreciative of all the volunteers who make this program so successful. Thank you Burnaby Meals on Wheels!”
Brad & Family – Caregivers
- “I just love everything about Burnaby Meals on Wheels! I have difficulty walking and use a walker, so going to the grocery store is very time consuming. The meals are so good and the volunteers who deliver them to me are just wonderful. ”
Verona – Burnaby Meals on Wheels Client
- “Knowing that I may be the only person that my clients see in a given day makes me want to spend an extra few minutes to chat and ask them a few questions. Usually they tell me how grateful they are to have the volunteers take the time to bring them their meals. It’s very rewarding being a volunteer for Burnaby Meals on Wheels.”
