Immediate Volunteer Needs

Assisting with resident meals: No one likes to be rushed when enjoying a meal.  Many residents need help with their meals due to various reasons. Having someone spends one on one time with a resident to assist with the meal it has many benefits.  It benefits the health of the resident because they are able to eat without feeling rushed.  It also establishes a more relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere for everyone in the dining room.

We need volunteers to assist at meal times, especially Breakfast (8:15am – 9:45am) and Supper (4:30pm – 6:15pm).  You can decide the on the meal and the day of the week that you can make it.  Training will be provided

Immediate Volunteer Needs - Two people sorting buttons

Activity Helpers: We currently have a great need for volunteers to spend time with a few residents to encourage and set up activities that will add satisfaction and purpose to those residents lives (folding laundry, sorting or matching objects, setting tables, reading group, math problems worksheets, sanding or painting projects etc.)
