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.
Perley Rideau volunteers provide special comfort and care to residents of our Seniors’ Village. They are carefully screened and trained to give direct support through medical escorts, feeding, visiting, pet therapy, palliative and spiritual care. Volunteers enable greater participation in church services, creative arts, recreation, and physiotherapy programs. They staff the Gift Shop, Pub and Ice Cream Parlour and they porter residents to the Beauty Salon and Barber Shop. Loved ones can also volunteer to provide direction to the Health Centre through the Family and Friends Council. Read more about the wide range of opportunities for you to help improve the well-being of the people we serve.
Our volunteers range in age from 13 to 95 and include people of all abilities. Through Volunteer Services, Perley Rideau offers High School Co-op placements and a Summer Youth Program. We are pleased to provide all registered volunteers with a thorough orientation, ongoing training opportunities, free parking and vouchers for refreshments in the cafeteria. Want to get involved?
