Baycrest volunteers truly make a difference in the lives of clients and impact almost every area of our organization. Here are a few examples of what our volunteers are currently doing.
Spend time with hospital clients or residents in our long-term care home. Your friendly face and kind interaction will make a big difference! Activities may include chatting and reminiscing, playing games, and taking a walk around campus.
Community Day Centre
The Community Day Centre is always looking for active volunteers to socialize at lunchtime and assist with the arts and crafts programs.
Be a friendly visitor at mealtime, assist a client with eating, or act as a dining room greeter. Eating assistance volunteers receive specialized training in the latest eating assistance techniques.
If you play a musical instrument or love singing, this is a great volunteer opportunity for you. Baycrest clients and residents can benefit immensely from music programs.
Seniors Support Programs
Volunteers in the Seniors Support Program provide help to seniors and family caregivers living in the community by consistently staying in touch with them.
Through a scheduled weekly telephone call or email, each volunteer will patiently listen to their client, offer encouragement or provide helpful information as required. If individuals need more support, a social worker is available.
