Wellness Centre


Wellness Centre at Jeffery Hale

The community Wellness Centre (WE) promotes the personal and shared well-being of English speakers in the Quebec City region by offering a range of healthy living programs. 

Wellness volunteers enhance the service offer adapted to meet the health and social service needs of the members of the English-speaking community.

You bring compassion, joy and community spirit to families, seniors and youth with special needs!
  

We are always in great need of WE Drivers to transport vulnerable community members to essential medical appointments. If you would like to register to become a transportation volunteer in our Better Impact system, please scroll down the page to the Assistance for seniors and vulnerable community members section and click on the link WE Drivers.  

Please note that most of our volunteer opportunities take place during the weekdays and at business hours (8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) simply by the nature of the task (i.e. medical appointments, Day Centre hours) and the preference/needs of the vulnerable seniors we assist.  However, Grocery Shopping & Errands and Friendly Visits can take place during the evenings and weekends if that is when you are available. 

After you click on the volunteer opportunity of your choice, you may click on the fill in an application button. If you have any trouble please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at eholloway@jhpartners.net

Assistance for seniors and vulnerable community members

Many English-speaking seniors living in Quebec City may feel isolated and alone, especially if their family lives elsewhere. Caring volunteers like you help foster a sense of belonging and community, crucial to physical and mental well-being.

Our most urgent need is for WE Drivers.

 

Join us to assist our most vulnerable community members through occasional, but essential volunteer services. Even if you can help only a few times a year, you would still be a welcome addition to our team! You are free to say yes or no to any volunteer requests, and we gladly reimburse your mileage starting right at your front door. 

Rest assured that we have carefully outlined procedures that will allow you to complete your volunteer tasks with COVID-19 prevention at the front of mind.

Chit Chat Club

Returning Fall 2022!

English and French-speakers get together once a month to work to a variety of tasks while practicing their second-language in small groups. It’s fun, informal and a great way to make new friends.

Volunteers work together in conversation groups on tasks like: washing/sanitizing toys, preparing crafts, folding newsletters or pamphlets, organizing books, folding fresh laundry, hanging decorations. These activities occur once a month on Friday.

Day Centre

Back with socially distanced, smaller groups!

 

Our Day Centre enables seniors to socialize and enjoy planned activities in a group setting, while still receiving needed health services from our nurse, occupational therapist and special educators. At the same time, we offer family caregivers respite from caregiving duties while knowing that their loved one is in a safe place (Living Room Program). You must follow the established policies and procedures, as outlined in the Assisting Seniors e-learning module.

 

Seniors are picked up at home via our bus, are offered a nice warm meal while they're with us and dropped off at the end of their day. This is where volunteers are needed – to welcome and serve morning beverages, serve the noontime meal, wrap up the day with a smile and assistance to our bus.

 

In order to respect social distancing, smaller groups are now welcomed to the Pavilion as of April 2022. Since May 14, the Québec government withdrew the requirement to wear a mask in indoor public places.  Public health care settings, however, are subject to special measures to help protect the most vulnerable among us. Therefore, staff and volunteers at the Wellness Centre Pavilion during this activity still must continue to wear a mask while in the building, and follow other distancing and hygiene measures in place.

Family Matters

Take-a-Break Returning Fall 2022!

 

As a child care volunteer, you care for children aged 5 years old and under while their parents participate in a parenting session. Your role is to ensure that the children are safe, secure and occupied. You are expected to be punctual, reliable and respectful and aware of the needs of young children. You must follow the established policies and procedures, as outlined in the Caring for Kids e-learning module.

 

You will work with other volunteers in overseeing a group of children (maximum 12) in the children's space while their parents are in the adjoining room. You are expected to arrive, sign in, get your nametag and help with room set up, assist with assigned child care activities and clean-up.  You should be able to speak and understand English.
