As a JIM’s Suites Volunteer, you will help a client living with dementia get a warm and friendly experience as they enjoy some time away in our overnight respite suites!
Our JIM’s Suites volunteers will help provide the whole package! From assisting with mealtimes, integrating clients into the day program, tidying and prepping the bedrooms, to even an evening of games and movies with clients. Your companionship will help make the day special for a person with dementia.
Volunteers will be provided with training on safety protocols and the use of PPE. All volunteers and staff are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, wear a mask and follow all government-mandated protocols when visiting clients.
