A volunteer in this program is very important for residents who may require some basic assistance during mealtimes. The Volunteers impact on residents is not only nutritional, but social as well. A volunteer’s responsibility would include assisting the resident to and from the dining room, reading the menu to the resident, gathering their selection and assisting the resident / coaching with their meal, allowing residents to be as independent as they are able. This role does not feed residents. Assist with mealtime table set up and clean up. Volunteers may assist with any of the three mealtimes; Breakfast 9am, Lunch12:15pm and Supper 5pm. You may choose to come in any of the meal times depending on your availability. Regular weekly commitments are appreciated.
