Looking to Volunteer?

 

Volunteers are an enormous part of our community by providing our residents with exceptional services. We are always looking for those who are wanting to get involved! If you would like to donate some of your time and energy, please consider some of these opportunities at the Leamington Mennonite Home.

Visitation & Reading

Many of our residents enjoy quality one-on-one visits. These visits are generally 30 minutes in length and may include reading from the newspaper or church bulletin. We ask that volunteers commit to visiting the same resident consistently.

Hair Salon

Our Hair Salon provides our residents with a weekly beauty and hairdressing experience. Volunteers assist with portering residents to and from the Hair Salon and other tasks as needed.

The Salon is open on

Wednesdays and Thursdays

8:15am to 3:00pm

Spiritual Support

We find that daily devotions assist our residents in beginning their day with a spiritual thought or prayer.

 

Morning Devotions are held from Monday through Saturday at 7:40am. These 5-minute readings are supplied by Our Home through a devotional book.

Evening Devotions are held most evenings in the Chapel at 6:30pm for about 20 minutes. Residents are portered to and from Evening Devotions with the assistance of Activity Helpers.

Pastoral Breakfast Meetings are held on a quarterly basis at the Heritage Centre to discuss the special needs of residents.

Meal Assistance

We require volunteers to assist with feeding in our Long Term Care facility. These volunteers assist with feeding residents who can no longer feed themselves and provide pleasant conversation while doing so.

Meal Times

11:45am - 12:15pm

4:45pm - 5:15pm

Volunteer Drivers

Volunteer Drivers provide transportation and companionship to Retirement Residents and Complex Tenants who do not have family available to drive them to medical and other appointments. Scheduling is made through the Front Office. Residents pay the driver a fee to cover gas, as well as any applicable parking fees.

Meals on Wheels

Our Meals on Wheels program is available 7 days a week to our Complex Tenants and seniors in our community. Drivers deliver a hot, home-cooked meal from our Kitchen.

Delivery takes approximately 20 minutes beginning at 11:30am.

We have regular volunteers as well as occasional volunteers who fill in when regulars are not available.

Musical Performances & Sing Alongs

Do you have a musical talent?

Do you belong to a musical group?

 

Our Home provides musical entertainment for our residents in the Front Lobby on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:00pm for 45-60 minutes every week. If you would like to share your gift of music with our seniors, then this volunteer position is for you!

Arts & Crafts

Hands-on activities provide our residents with mental stimulation - we use Arts & Crafts as stimulation here in Our Home. Participants will require some assistance, which is where volunteers come in.

Crafts take place on Monday and Saturday mornings from 9:00am - 10:30am.

We sometimes require volunteers to support staff and residents with special events throughout the year.
