Volunteer Companion Program


As a Volunteer Companion, you are matched with a person living in the early to mid-stages of dementia in our community. Your weekly, two-hour visits will offer socialization and enjoyment to the person with dementia and respite time for their caregiver.

Hours are flexible, and all volunteers are trained and screened before being matched with a client. These friendly visits could include any number of activities such as:

  • Going for coffee
  • Playing games
  • Having a chat
  • Reading
  • Walking

For more information, contact Jennifer Hale, Volunteer Services Coordinator – 519-680-2404 ext. 234 or
