Volunteers are an important part of life at the Clarion. They are appreciated and valued for the contribution that they make in the lives of Residents. Clarion is a member of the Ontario Volunteer Association and Volunteers are recognized on a regular basis with Recognition and Reward Programs and thank you ceremonies during National Volunteer Week.

Volunteer are all specially trained to provide a number of services.

Meal Assistants: Assisting the care staff by providing a friendly, warm atmosphere for Residents to enjoy their meal or to help with the Restorative Dining program, where Residents can maintain their independence through the use of specialized utensils, under gentle supervision with lots of encouragement.

Escort: Accompanying Residents to various appointments, via Clarion's Wheelchair Van, Taxis and Darts to ensure their safety and security.

Church Services: Porter Residents to and from services and assist them during church, as well as visiting with them afterward.

Reading Time: Giving that little extra to Residents by reading a book or letters and cards that they have received.

Friendly Visiting: One on one time visiting with Residents in their room or in a common area. This provides comfort, companionship and social stimulation for the Residents.

Portering: A very important task, seeing that Residents get to and from the barber, hairdresser, and special activities.

Crafts: Offering creative talents to provide craft articles for fundraising projects or to assist Residents with their own craft project.

Bingo Assistant: Enable residents to enjoy a game of bingo, assisted by monitoring cards for those who may not be able to play on their own.

Volunteers are always welcome to join. Come alone or with a friend. Volunteers are adults as well as teens, however if you are under the age of 16 special permission is required. It is rewarding to know that you have touched the lives of others and that their life is better because of the time you have given.
