Volunteer to make a difference in the life of a mature adult in our community.

What are the benefits of being a volunteer?     

In a busy world, taking time to help others is rewarding in so many ways, such as:

  • Satisfaction of helping someone else
  • Hearing firsthand experiences of the past that shaped our future
  • Sense of pride in making a difference
  • Impacting someone’s life by taking the time to care
  • Making friends with wonderful seniors
  • Building a stronger community
  • Expanding your social network
  • And more.

Go on, make a difference in someone’s life.

What do Elder Care volunteers do?

Our committed volunteers do a variety of different tasks for Elder Care and for the people we serve including:

  • Reading to participants, helping with craft projects, playing games, or playing music in our DayBreak program.
  • Answering telephones in the Elder Care offices, or helping with light office work.
  • Participating in fundraising events including set up, tear down, planning, greeting and more.
  • Helping at a Golden Hour event with preparation, serving, carrying plates and cups for mature adults or cleaning up.
  • Supporting Elder Care events and functions as a greeter, at check in, set up, tear down and more.
  • Minor home repair, such as installing a portable bathroom handrail or railing on the home’s exterior or repairing stairs.

These are just some of the ways you can make a difference; the difference that will allow older adults to remain comfortable and safe in their own homes, and to remain an active part of our community.

What are the qualifications for volunteering?

To be a volunteer all you need is the desire to help, a loving heart and willing hands. Please consider donating your time to make the difference in an elderly person’s life and your life too!
