Wellness Centre


Wellness Centre at Jeffery Hale

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

You bring compassion, joy and community spirit to families, seniors and youth with special needs, helping to improve access to services for some of the most vulnerable members of the community.

We are always in great need of WE Drivers to drive and accompany community members to essential medical appointments

Please note that most of our volunteer opportunities are during regular business hours (weekdays, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) simply due to the nature of the task (i.e. medical appointments, Day Centre hours) and the needs of the vulnerable seniors who we assist. If you would like to help with Grocery Shopping & Errands and Friendly Visits, however, you can do so evenings and weekends if you prefer.

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.

Day Centre

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.
