CNHPS is helping every older adult and their caregivers feel connected to his or her community

About

The Compassionate Neighbourhood Health Partners Society (CNHPS) is a

registered charitable society, governed by the BC Societies Act and its own Constitution and by-laws.

 

CNHPS was incorporated as a non-profit organization on June 21, 2017, and received charitable

status in 2019.

 

We are comprised of a Board, three contracted part-time staff and trained volunteers. We provide a

variety of emotional and psychosocial support services for older adults and their caregivers under five

programs.

Why Was The CNHPS Formed?

As in many parts of the world, the percentage of the population that are seniors has increased dramatically in B.C. Most seniors would like to remain in their own homes for as long as possible. At the same time, their support networks are shrinking, and many seniors find themselves with few family members living nearby. Much research has been done that points to increasing loneliness and/or social isolation among our senior population which can lead to other chronic conditions or increase the severity of these chronic conditions.

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."
