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

We are hoping to fill several positions in the following volunteer role as soon as possible:

  • Gardening Support any day of the week! 1-2 hours a week is all it takes, and our Gardener Donna would greatly appreciate your assistance helping her maintain our many gardens. This role is physical in nature

  • Dining Room Assistant for any evening meal from 5:00 to 6:30pm, or weekend meals with shifts from 8:00 to 9:30am, 12:00 to 1:30pm or 5:00 to 6:30pm

  • Musical Entertainers for occasional special events and theme programmes. Just one hour of sharing your musical talents will bring joy to our residents!

  • Programme Support for our special events and outings happening throughout the year. This role occurs on an occasional basis and is not a weekly commitment; time and day will vary.

OTHER OPPORTUNITIES INCLUDE:

EVERY OTHER Tuesday Afternoon Trivia Programme

We are looking for a volunteer to lead a Trivia Programme with a small group of residents every other Tuesday afternoon from 1:45 to 2:45pm

Friday OR Saturday Afternoon Golf Cart Rides

We are looking for a volunteer to accompany our Recreation Therapist and a small group of residents on weekly golf cart rides. This is a 1:15 to 3:45pm shift and is dependent on the weather.

Church Assistance

Our Recreation Therapists appreciate assistance bringing residents to and from our in-house church service every Sunday; this shift runs from 1:30 to 3:00pm

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

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.

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!
