|We would welcome individuals who would enjoy spending time with our Elders. Playing cards or games and reading are some of the activities you can do to make a one-to-one visit special and meaningful.
|If you can play a musical instrument such as piano, guitar or violin and would like to perform for small groups of our Elders, Golden Door would enjoy hearing from you.
If you are looking for ways to reach out and touch someone's life, a great place to start is by volunteering at Golden Door Geriatric Centre. There are many wonderful opportunities to make a difference in the lives of our elders and volunteers are a welcome sight at our home.
Often, the Residents of personal care homes find themselves in the unfortunate situation of feeling loneliness and depression on a daily basis. Even with an activities program, many residents lack the personal one on one time that most of us crave. Many Residents may have no family or friends who come to visit, and find themselves bored, wishing they had a friend to talk to.
As a volunteer, you could be that much needed friend who spends an hour or so playing cards, reading to an elder whose eyes have failed or just talking.
Many volunteers have reported a feeling of well-being, a knowledge that they made someone's day a little easier, or a little brighter. Sometimes, bringing someone fresh picked flowers goes a long way!
Along with the word 'volunteering' comes many ideas and images about what it means to be a volunteer. In reality, it means being a friend...someone to chase away the loneliness and make a person feel loed!
