Volunteers play a valuable part in enriching the lives of our residents and they bring a unique energy to the entire community. By contributing time, special skills, and a "caring heart", you can make a difference and enhance the quality of life of older adults. We value the dedication of our volunteers and encourage involvement in all aspects of our community's life. They are an integral part of our "total care" team.
At AON Long Term Care homes, volunteers have the opportunity to make new friends and to encounter new experiences, skills and challenges. Most volunteers commit to an ongoing number of hours per week or per month -- and often create their own positions based on their interests and talents. Others find volunteering an excellent way to brush up on job skills before returning to the workforce and make a short-term commitment instead. We also encourage high school and college students in Co-operative Education programs to consider us for a work experience placement.
Depending upon your time, interests, and skills, our homes offer a wide variety of challenging and fulfilling volunteer positions. Some typical roles include:
