Care Services - Mealtime Companion

916 18A Street NW, Calgary, AB, T2N 1C6 [map]
1-3 hours / daily
Ongoing
If you enjoy interacting with people and providing support for vulnerable individuals, then we would love to have you join our volunteer team! Our Mealtime Companions provide vital personal contact through assistance with feeding. Eating is meant to be a social, interactive experience and your contribution will positively impact the quality of life for residents. This role involves everything from assisting with packages, utensils, portions and even full feeding. Through conversation and companionship, encouraging independence and providing support, you can make a difference for someone today. Whether you have a small amount of time to come in or want to stay and make it a longer one on one experience, we are happy to have you as part of our Care Services team.
Additional Details & Skills Required
A Volunteer Orientation session including Dementia, Safe Feeding & Health Protocol training is provided. Receipt of at least one dose of a COVID vaccine now required. Volunteers interact with the nursing staff as an important member of our care team to ensure that the needs of each individual are respected and fulfilled.
Certification or Education Required
All training provided. Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination required.
Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
We have options for short time commitments and flexible schedules. After a minimum of 40 hours we offer a reference letter to use for post-secondary, scholarship or job applications. It is a perfect opportunity for anyone considering a future in any health care human services field, people looking for intergenerational experiences or for anyone with a desire and compassion to help others in their community.
