Bonnie Davoren has been volunteering with the Family Caregivers’ Network (FCNS) for 20 years!
Bonnie is, and has always been a very busy lady. She has been a family caregiver in the past and is a retired registered nurse, certified in Geriatric Nursing, and a post graduate in gerontology.
In addition to volunteering with FCNS, Bonnie has also been involved with the South Vancouver Island Family Planning Clinic, Therapeutic Touch Group, the Gerontological Nurses Group and the Return to Health program through Seniors Serving Seniors.
Bonnie has put in many, many hours as a volunteer with FCNS in many capacities over the past twenty years. To highlight just a few:
She was an active member of the Board of Directors for five years. Currently, she is facilitating the Victoria Support Group – which she has done for the past 12 years! She is the creator and ardent promoter of the Medical Information Package and the Wellness Booklet, distributed by FCNS. Bonnie continues to help out at events, workshops and fundraisers and is always willing and happy to promote FCNS wherever she goes.
Bonnie brings compassion, expertise and knowledge to her role as volunteer – such valuable qualities when supporting family caregivers. Her laughter, enthusiasm and zest for life are contagious – if Bonnie is at an event, you can be sure that those around her are feeling uplifted and encouraged!
Thank you Bonnie, for your many years of passionate support of the Family Caregivers’ Network Society.
