Welcome to Greenwoods Eldercare Society's Volunteer program. At Greenwoods Eldercare Society and Braehaven, the assisted living facility, we offer numerous volunteering opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.
GES employs a full time Volunteer Coordinator who is part of the multidisciplinary team. The Coordinator is the liaison between the staff and volunteers and is qualified in the recruitment, screening, training and placement of appropriate volunteers. The Coordinator, will discuss with volunteers their interests and together will implement an assignment that is both rewarding and stimulating.
Staff in cooperation with the Coordinator, assist with ongoing support, recognition, guidance and evaluation of volunteers and their assignments.
GES recognizes volunteers as valuable members of the healthcare team and works to provide a positive and supportive environment. Your role as a volunteer at GES is to complement professional staff by supporting the dignity, safety, security, and quality of care that we provide to the residents/clients of GES. We are proud of all our volunteers who generously give their time and energy to assist staff to create a life affirming, home-like environment.
If you are a kind, caring, and dedicated individual interested in working with our health care team and residents kindly contact our Co-ordinator of Volunteers Nikki Hanssens at (250) 537-5561 ext 226 for further information.
