CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES

If you, or someone you know, would enjoy any of the following volunteer roles, please contact Mary Black at 519.846.5359 x 7266, or at maryb@wellington.ca

Dining Room Assistance

 We are looking for volunteer assistance in our resident dining rooms for all weekend and evening meals. In this role, you would be assisting residents who can no longer assist themselves at meal time. This shift would consist of 1.5 hours any evening between 5pm and 6:30pm, or any weekend meal (8am to 9:30am, 12pm to 1:30pm or 5pm to 6:30pm)

One to One Visiting

Some of our residents would greatly benefit from one to one conversational visits, one to one games, and strolls outside in the nice weather.

Musical Entertainment

For our small and large group special events and theme programmes, we are always looking for volunteers who enjoy playing an instrument or singing for our residents.

No One Dies Alone Programme

This role supports our residents who are palliative - at the end stage of life - by sitting with them, and perhaps their loved ones, so that they are not alone at this time

Sunday Chapel Service Assistance

We are looking for volunteers to assist our Recreation Staff every Sunday from 1:30 to 3:00pm, to bring residents to and from the Sunday church service.

Monday Afternoon Euchre Afternoon

Every Monday afternoon between 2pm and 3pm a small group of residents enjoy a game of euchre, and appreciate a volunteer to play with or support this games- hour

Thursday Afternoon Music and Dance Programme

Our Recreation Staff and Behaviour Support Staff lead a Music and Dance programme every Thursday afternoon and are looking for a volunteer who would enjoy dancing with residents and helping them enjoy the music afternoon by sitting and socializing with them.

Van Driver

This is an occasional position that varies in day, time and length of shift.  Our residents may have appointments scheduled out in the community and require a ride to and from the appointment. We have an accessible van that we can provide for this transportation; we are looking for volunteers who are 25 years of age or older, can provide a clean driving abstract and liability insurance, and are comfortable and confident in their driving skills. There is always a volunteer escort to accompany the volunteer and resident as well

Biking Buddies and Golf Cart Ride Support

From May until October we have Duet Bikes that volunteers can take individual residents out for rides throughout the grounds and the Cataract Trail. We also have a 6-seater golf cart that our Recreation Staff drive, and they appreciate volunteers accompanying the residents during the ride

Gardening

Our Staff Gardener appreciates volunteer support in preparing and maintaining our multiple garden areas throughout the Home
