Volunteers play a vital role in our long term care facility. Most participate during the weekdays, however, there are some who volunteer on weekends. The following lists the volunteer opportunities that are currently available.
Recreation Activities offer opportunities for residents to socialize with others. Volunteers assist with the preparation and facilitation of indoor and outdoor activities (concerts, games, outings, barbecues, discussion groups, films, etc.) They accompany residents from their rooms to the activity area, socialize with residents and serve refreshments.
Pastoral Care: Religious services and pastoral care is provided to the residents. Volunteers assist with the service and in bringing the residents to and from where the service is held.
Friendly Visiting: Volunteers visit isolated residents. When a resident does not speak English or French, every effort is made to match the person with a volunteer who can speak the same language.
Tuck Shop: Volunteers operate a concession stand where items such as coffee, chocolate bars, and toiletries are sold to the residents, guests and staff.
Beauty Spa: Volunteers apply nail polish and give gentle hand massages to residents. The spa is held on Wednesday afternoons.
One-time Activities: Volunteers help with tasks such as fundraisers, decorating the residences during the holidays, and accompaniment on group outings.
