Thank you for Adopting a Grandparent
Many of us are fortunate enough to have friends and family to support us. Many of us have the financial resources to pay for the support we need. For thousands of senior Calgarians, this is not the case… The seniors we work with are some of our communities' most desperate.
By donating to Adopt a Grandparent, you are ensuring some of our city's most vulnerable seniors have FREE access to Calgary Seniors programs, which ensure they are connected with people who care and will receive the vital support they need, when they need it! Calgary Seniors is the only organization that provides programs, at no cost to assist low-income, isolated seniors who need support with day to day living and social companionship.
- $100 provides a lonely senior with a Christmas Cheer-Up visit from a friendly volunteer
- $250 provides a senior and their pet with access to vet care and a Pet Assist Volunteer
- $500 provides 10 Escorted Transportation trips to their medical appointments
- $1,000 provides a senior with a Friendly Visitor for an entire year!
Your Adoption will provide these seniors with Friendly Visiting Volunteers who will visit when they are lonely, Escorted Transportation rides to medical appointments when they have no way to get there and are feeling apprehensive, Assisted Shoppers who help them with their shopping when they are too frail to manage it all, or Pet Assist Volunteers who provide assistance with their pets when they can no longer properly care for them but can’t bear the thought of surrendering their beloved companions.
