Volunteer Opportunities at Nisbet Lodge

Volunteering is a great way to make a difference in the life of a seniors, learn new skills or practice old ones. Whether you have a little time or a lot, volunteers allow us to do so much more than we could do otherwise.

If you are a high school student looking to complete the required 40 hours, a Co-op student searching for a placement, or a community member wanting to give back we would love for you to be part of our team. The following are some areas where volunteers can help out:

  • Friendly Visits for English and Greek-speaking residents.
  • Meal Mates – assisting residents to eat at mealtime (training will be provided)
  • Community Buddies – assisting the Activation staff, taking residents on bus trips.
  • Tour Guides – providing the public with a tour of Nisbet Lodge.
  • Special Events – help run birthday parties, seasonal socials.
  • Spiritual Programs – hymn sing, bible study, Holy Communion.
  • Student Placements – both high school, college, and university students.
  • Fundraising.
