The Delta Hospital Program sees volunteers from the Delta Police CoPS offices visit patients in the Extended Care/Assisted Living Department at the Delta Hospital. The program began in 2012 at the suggestion of a CoPS volunteer and was received enthusiastically by Delta Hospital.
Volunteers are interviewed and screened and given times to visit the seniors.
Volunteers for this program benefit from hands on experience in an assisted living environment and get a high level of personal satisfaction by interacting with senior citizens. Seniors also benefit greatly from this program as it enhances their quality of life.
The Team Leader of the Delta Hospital program is a Registered Care Aid with experience in the medical industry.
