Friendly Visitor for Isolated Seniors


  • WHERE
    Toronto, ON

DESCRIPTION

Can you spare two hours per week to make a difference in the life of a senior?

We are seeking caring and compassionate individuals who can provide companionship and social support to socially isolated seniors. Your time will help to reduce their loneliness and improve their quality of life.

While this role offers flexible timing, we are especially seeking volunteers who are free during regular business hours.

This is a great way to get involved in your community.

Please note that WoodGreen serves clients located in east central Toronto and friendly visits will be within this geographic area.

Background Screening:

Please note that a Vulnerable Sector Screening is required for this role prior to working with clients.  WoodGreen will process this for you if you do not have a VSS that has been issued within 12 months from the date of interview.  Depending on your address, there may be a charge for this service as levied by your police jurisdiction. 

If you are interested in this role, please contact WoodGreen's Volunteer Services department and a member of the team will be in touch shortly.

Email volunteer@woodgreen.org or call 416.645.6000 ext. 1157

Thank you for making a difference in your community!
