Do you have a great respect for Veterans? Enjoy spending time with seniors? Like a variety of activities? You may want to volunteer to assist Activity Workers with programs for Veterans who live in their own homes. Activities may include: word games, art, gardening, music, coffee chats, group outings. This is a dynamic program that provides lots of fun and experience for volunteers. Some clients may have dementia.
They need a volunteer for the Sunday drop in session from 10:00am-2:00pm or Thursday afternoons from 3:00pm-7:00pm. A weekly time commitment of at least two hours of a four hour shift is appreciated.
The Lodge at Broadmead (located on Chatterton Way) is home to 225 seniors and Veterans, 75% of whom have moderate to advanced dementia. The Veterans Health Centre (located in The Lodge at Broadmead) provides social activities and interdisciplinary health and social support services on site to veterans living in the community.
