Volunteer Opportunities at Nisbet Lodge
Volunteering is a great way to make a difference in the life of a senior, 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
Before starting to volunteer there are a few mandatory requirements.
Fill out a volunteer application form
Get a vulnerable sector police check
Complete an online module style orientation
Provide immunization record
