Les possibilités de bénévolat

Bruyère Continuing Care is partnering with other senior care partners in Ontario and with a Norwegian Industry partner, Motitech AS to study the added value of a motivational healthcare solution called Motiview that may encourage participation in cycling activity for individuals in Long Term Care settings. Some of our residents spend most of their time inactive, have a low mood and have dementia. Research shows that increasing physical activity for these individuals may provide an enjoyable and fulfilling activity, improve mobility, mood, and sleep and reduce fall risks!

Projet de recherche mobilisateur sur l’activité physique

Soins continus Bruyère s’associe à d’autres organismes de soins aux aînés en Ontario et à la société norvégienne Motitech AS pour étudier la valeur ajoutée de Motiview, une solution motivatrice en soins de santé qui pourrait encourager les personnes en foyer de soins de longue durée à s’adonner à une activité cycliste. Certains de nos résidents passent beaucoup de temps à ne rien faire, ont l’humeur maussade et sont atteints de démence. La recherche montre que l’augmentation de l’activité physique chez ces personnes pourrait leur apporter du plaisir et leur permettre de s’épanouir dans une activité susceptible d’améliorer leur mobilité, leur humeur et leur sommeil en plus de réduire les risques de chutes!

Pour mieux connaître Motiview ou pour contempler les splendides circuits cyclistes proposés aux résidents, visionnez ces vidéos :

Our arts and crafts studio operates primarily on a “drop-in” basis. Patients are able to drop by Monday and/or Wednesday afternoons to colour, paint or simply be “artsy”. This is an ongoing program and we need someone who is comfortable assisting patients with their projects in small groups, is creative and energetic. Ideally, this position is suitable for someone with an arts background or has a general interest in arts and crafts and is available and willing to take the lead.

Our classical music program takes place every Monday from 1-3 pm. Patients have the opportunity to temporarily escape as you take them through a musical journey of YouTube videos talking about musical pieces, and bring into context key elements you wish to discuss such as history, the author, instruments etc. As a leader of the program, you would be responsible for downloading musical content on our tablet, planning your weekly session, portering patients etc.
This is suited for someone who shares a passion for music, notably classical. It is also great for someone who is energetic, independent and reliable and who can take on initiative.

One of the simplest ways of connecting the love of music with improving the quality of life of individuals and one’s memory is our Music and Memory Program. Patients have the opportunity to borrow and listen to their favourite, personalised playlists. Volunteers are needed to take the lead on meeting with patients to see if they are interested in the program, be able to download music and playlists. This is an ongoing opportunity and if you are able to commit to 1-2 shifts per week, you would be one of the main liaisons for the program.

If you share a passion for music, have good interpersonal skills and have an interest in pursuing this opportunity, please let us know!
