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
  • Fundraising
