Choose from a variety of fun, rewarding VILLA VOLUNTEER roles:
For those who are interested in the spiritual side of care, help residents to and from the Villa Chapel and attend mass with them, if you are comfortable. Become a Eucharistic Minister or read during mass at the Villa and live your faith.
One to One Friendly Visitor
Become a companion to a Villa resident! Many of our seniors would love the company of a caring individual to share memories, stories and thoughts with. Often their network of family and friends are not in a position to visit regularly. Your undivided interest and attention, one-on-one, will ensure they stay active, engaged and energized. Great conversation, a visit the tuck shoppe, or go for a walk! Your support will make a huge impact.
OTA/PTA Program Assistant
This new volunteer opportunity is for those with an interest in physical rehabilitation. Volunteers assist on our 5th floor in the Rehabilitation room, cleaning machines and assisting in the physical therapy, going for walks with individuals staying at the Villa temporarily. This is a great introduction to careers in Occupational and Physiotherapy, as well as valuable experience for students already passionate about the field.
Assist Villa staff at meal times and help those Villa residents who require extra assistance feeding. A great opportunity to interact with seniors and care with compassion.
Pet Therapy Visitors
Villa residents love spending time with furry friends. Volunteers bring their pets and tour one floor, visiting with residents individually. They have a chance to play, bond and get a little love from these adorable companions.
