Volunteering can:
  • Connect you to others
  • Increase your social and relationship skills
  • Involve other family members
  • Enhance both mind and body (increasing self-confidence, combatting depression, improving/maintaining physical health)
  • Advance your career
  • Help you learn new skills
  • Bring fun and fulfillment to your life

Most of all, volunteering can deeply impact the life of the person or people you are serving as well as your life.

Volunteer opportunities vary by location and may include:

Escorting residents

Here, you help residents get from Point A to Point B by propelling their wheelchair. This might involve accompanying residents to and from beauty salon appointments, chapel services or to an off-campus outing.


Here, you befriend a resident seeking social connection. This could involve bringing your pet with you during a visit too!

Supportive services

Here, you help with garden and building maintenance, assist in the dining room, answer call-lights for non-care tasks or deliver newspapers.

Purposeful living

Here, you assist in leading activities, and help residents participate in activities that may be difficult for them to do independently, perform basic manicures and more.
