Niagara Health recruiting volunteers

Are you looking for a rewarding experience by getting involved in your community? If so, please consider joining Niagara Health’s team of extraordinary volunteers.

Niagara Health is looking for volunteers who have excellent interpersonal skills and enjoy comforting others to volunteer at our sites across Niagara. We currently have more than 850 dedicated people helping to provide extraordinary caring to our patients and their families, and we would like to recruit more.

“We have an amazing collection of volunteers who come from all walks of life -- retirees, newcomers to the community, high school, college and university students and business professionals, to name a few,” says Pauline Caroll, Niagara Health Volunteer Co-ordinator. “Whether it’s visiting some of our patients, assisting with mealtimes, helping out in our emergency departments or working our information desks, our volunteers are an integral part of Niagara Health.”

Volunteers also help to raise money through our gift shops, lottery ticket sales and other ways that support Niagara Health Foundation and hospital auxiliaries.

“Volunteering offers people the chance to make a difference in the lives of our patients and to give back to the community,” says Tracey Giovannone, Manager, Recruitment and Volunteer Services at Niagara Health. “For others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills, meet new people or it can provide a sense of accomplishment. Regardless of the motivation, what unites them all is that they find it rewarding and our volunteers take great pleasure in helping others. 

Volunteers at Niagara Healthy are a satisfied group. A recent survey showed an overall satisfaction rate of 92.7% from our volunteers
