Volunteer Opportunities

Celebrating Volunteers…

Bay Haven Senior Care Community has a dedicated group of volunteers. The role of the volunteers is to assist in the Activation Department with the social, recreational and spiritual programs provided to the residents. Some of the volunteers attend Bay Haven on a weekly basis, others on a monthly basis and some once or twice a year.

Volunteering is the perfect opportunity to learn new skills, share talents and develop new relationships. At Bay Haven, volunteer opportunities are available in either the long term care home or the retirement home. Compassion, patience and understanding are necessary qualifications and a variety of times are available to suit your schedule. Volunteers play a significant role in assisting the residents.

Volunteens are between the ages 14 and 18. Volunteens provide assistance in the nursing home after school, on weekends and during the summer. If you are between 14 and 18, willing to have the influenza vaccine and can commit one hour per week for a 15-week period consider becoming a volunteen. Becoming a Volunteen can help satisfy the Ministry of Education requirement for volunteer hours.

All volunteers and volunteens require a recent police check and a recent flu vaccination during the flu season
