Description Network Friend
Victoria, BC

Lifetime Networks is a non-profit organization that creates opportunities for people with disabilities for friendship and support so they can live rewarding lives in the community.

We are seeking a Network Friend with a positive attitude and resilience for a man in his late-fifties living with MS. He is a laid-back individual whose professional music career was interrupted due to MS after he received his Bachelor of Music degree. The MS does affect his energy level but he is astute and is able to carry on an intellectual discussion. He has limited mobility and uses a manual wheelchair. With handyDART transportation arranged, he would enjoy going out to concerts, cafes, the museum and the IMAX theatre. He would also love to visit while listening to classical music. We are hoping the friend would be able to visit this gentleman once or twice each month.
