Rehabilitation: Volunteers work closely with the physiotherapy and occupational therapy staff and assist the patients by encouraging and monitoring them during their individualized treatment sessions and group exercise classes. Volunteers can also provide a supportive social visit to patients in their rooms. Volunteers can participate weekdays in a morning or afternoon session on a weekly basis.
Recreation: Volunteers work as a team to support and encourage patients through recreational activities designed to stimulate a patient’s cognitive and physical condition. Activities are offered weeknights and weekends. If you have a passion and skill in arts/crafts, social games, music, etc. and would like to volunteer as a group facilitator please contact the volunteer department.
Medical Escort Service: Volunteers can provide companionship and support when they accompany residents to medical appointments at local health institutions. Transportation is provided by taxi or adapted bus. Volunteers do not use their own cars. Volunteers must be available weekdays for a minimum 4 hour period or more.
