Niagara Health is thankful for the special partnerships formed with more than 850 community members, our Hospital Volunteers and Auxiliary Members. They contribute the highest quality of care for our patients through their hard work, compassion and dedication.
The services and programs volunteers provide are an invaluable support that complements the work of our staff. Our volunteers are a diverse group who range in age from 16 to 96 and come from all walks of life. Volunteers choose to share skills, abilities, experience and talent to benefit their communities. Through service, they learn new skills, make new friends, explore career options, network and remain actively engaged in the community during the golden years of retirement.
The types of volunteer Positions available at any one or more of Niagara Health sites include:
Commitment: A typical volunteer must commit to a consistent weekly shift of two to four hours, for a minimum one year.
During National Volunteer Week – April 18 to 24 – we are sending a special thank you to our dedicated team of volunteers.
Although they are currently not able provide in-person support due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Niagara Health volunteers continue to find new and invaluable ways to share their skills, abilities, experience and talent.
In February, an idea to provide patients and long-term care residents with adult clothing protectors was quickly embraced by a group of eager volunteers.
