A Mealtime Companion volunteer is a very important role for the residents who live at CapitalCare Grandview who are unable to fully help themselves during mealtime. A 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 with their meal, allowing residents to be as independent as they are able. Some residents require total assistance. 
Volunteers may assist with any of the three mealtimes; Breakfast -9am, Lunch -12:15pm and Supper -5pm. You may choose to come in any of the meal times depending on your availability. Regular commitments are appreciated.
