A new friendship helps Liz feel less isolated

As Lis Frederiksen aged in her home in Union Bay, her friends began to pass on and her neighbours moved away. In a community where she once knew everyone, she felt very alone and isolated.

Your support helped Lis find the companionship she needed through Comox Valley Senior Support Services, a United Way funded program. Her new friend, Louise, visits Lis every week to read to her and to spend time together. Lousie is also there tlo help Lis if she needs help getting to appointments or running errands.

Your donations are helping us build strong communities, full of connection. Hear more about how friendship has changed Lis' life.
