Volunteer Registry

Your Campus Connection


Description:

Provide companionship for persons living with multiple sclerosis (MS) that reside within long term care by visiting, chatting, playing cards/games, reading to them, discussing current events, helping them complete projects (activities decided upon by volunteer and resident). MS residents in long term care tend to feel isolated and lonely because of decreased socialization and would greatly benefit from regular visits by a 'friend.'
We are recruiting for facilities located in Edmonton & Sherwood Park with our greatest need in South Edmonton and Sherwood Park.


Qualifications:

Patient, compassionate, committed, comfortable with individuals experiencing decreased mobility. Requires police records check.


Training:

Friendly Visiting online orientation provided. In addition, some long term care facilities provide facility orientation.


Benefits:

This is an extremely flexible volunteer position, based entirely around your schedule. You will get to enhance the quality of someone's life who is suffering with MS and living in isolation; meet new people; build your resume. The MS Society also provides letters of reference.
