At Chartwell, our volunteers truly make a difference !
Chartwell values the time, skills and commitment of our volunteers.
As a volunteer in one of our retirement or long term care homes, you will play an important role in providing our residents with companionship, connection and friendship. Our volunteers vary in age, in background and in their availability of time. But one thing they all have in common is their kindness, compassion and a desire to make a difference in the life of a senior.
Our residents are wonderful people with interesting histories and backgrounds. Be prepared to find yourself looking forward to your volunteer visits whether it’s to partake in one of the home’s many group activities and events or to sit quietly and share stories, reminiscences and memories with individual residents.
For high school students, your visits may count towards the volunteer hours required for graduation. Please bring your community involvement paperwork, available from your high school, with you when inquiring about volunteer opportunities.
With over 180 locations across Canada, we likely have a home in your neighbourhood. Follow this link to find a location near you and please contact the retirement home or long term care home directly.
