CHF BC welcomes Seniors Resource Coordinator

CHF BC welcomes our new Seniors Resource Coordinator, ML Burke. ML will lead CHF BC's newest initiative, Co-op Connections for Independence, a project funded with an Eldercare grant from the BC Co-operative Association's (BCCA's) national Co-operative Eldercare Project.

Co-op Connections for Independence aims to link CHF BC members with the Province of BC's broad collection of resources and information designed to help seniors stay in their homes and age with dignity in their communities.The Seniors Resource Coordinator will help CHF BC members find the resources they need to support aging in place in co-op communities.

ML (aka Mary-Lynn) grew up in North Burnaby and raised her children in East Vancouver. She brings a wealth of experience to her role with CHF BC, from her early working life with non-profit theatre companies and, later, managing volunteer programs serving seniors with Vancouver Coastal Health. Now semi-retired, ML lives in Ladner where she advocates for seniors and affordable housing. She volunteers with the Delta Seniors Planning Team, sits on the Council of Advisors to the BC Seniors’ Advocate, is on the executive of the Delta Housing Be Mine Society and is involved with the Raising the (Seniors’) Profile project. She also writes a column for the Delta Optimist and North Delta Reporter.

Watch for more information on Aging in Place resources and insights from Ms. Burke coming soon. Welcome ML!
