Volunteer Opportunities

Many residents would love to have a special friend to spend time with. Perhaps to go for a walk, play a game of scrabble, or just sit and chat over a cup of tea. So many of our residents have led rich and interesting lives and would love to share their memories with a friend. Friendly visitors are especially important for residents with no families or whose loved ones live far away.

Who does not love a manicure? That feeling of being pampered and afterwards, the confidence boost of having well-groomed hands. Every week teams of 3-4 amateur manicurists give our residents this type of spa treatment. The residents enjoy it and so do the manicurists. At the moment, we need volunteers for the following shift: Thursdays between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. Training is provided.

Recreational activities are many and for each, a number of dedicated volunteers are needed to remind residents of the activity, encourage participation and help residents get to the venue. If the event is one where refreshments are served, volunteers help serve and then collect dishes afterwards. At the end, the volunteers help residents return to their rooms. Recreation Assistants find this is a great way to get to know residents, staff and other volunteers in a fun setting.

Dining should be a pleasurable activity. When some of our residents experience difficulty at meal time our Feeding Assistants lend a hand.

By their friendly presence they also make the meal restful and enjoyable. Feeding Assistants arrive when the meals are being served (8:30 am, 12:30 pm and 5:30 pm) and spend about one hour.
