Perley Rideau volunteers are a vital component of our health care team,
adding to the well-being of our residents in a multitude of ways.
Volunteers bring news and energy to our residents from the community along with a caring and friendly attitude to share. For the volunteers, their time with us offers opportunities to meet new friends, help others, learn new skills, and gain experience in the health care field.
All volunteers participate in a thorough screening and orientation process. Resident activities are matched with the volunteers' personal interests and time availability. How much time a volunteer devotes to Perley Rideau varies from person to person. Some volunteers visit for an hour or two every week while others help with monthly activities.
NB A minimum of a three-month volunteer commitment is required to ensure consistent resident care.
