WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING TO FILL THE FOLLOWING ROLES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE:

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

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. Training and education in working with people living with mental health would be a great asset as well!

Saturday Morning Bingo Support

Some of our residents would greatly benefit from assistance during our Saturday morning Bingo programme. This is a 10:00am to 11:00am shift, working alongside one of our Recreation Therapists

Looking Ahead to Spring and Summer:

Gardening Support

Our Gardening Staff would greatly appreciate some assistance in the gardens between May 1st and October 31st. Days and times can be flexible to meet your scheduling needs. This volunteer role is physical in nature.

Biking Buddies

We are very fortunate to own 4 accessible bicycles that volunteers can take residents out for rides on the local trail behind our Home. This is a very rewarding and physical role for volunteers 18 years of age and older. This role is active between mid-May and mid- October each year

Hair Salon Support

We are looking for volunteer assistance for our Hair Dresser for occasional mornings or afternoons during the week when our regularly-scheduled volunteers are unavailable. In this role, you would be assisting residents from various neighbourhoods to our in-house hair salon. This role involves socializing, assisting with light tasks and a good amount of walking throughout the building. No hair salon experience necessary!

Neighbourhood Volunteer

We are looking for volunteers who would like to commit 2 - 3 hours weekly to provide dining room support, programme and service support for residents in one of our Dementia Care neighbourhoods. This volunteer would work alongside the neighbourhood team members, particularly our Recreation Therapists, either mornings or afternoons
