Social Recreation


We offer volunteers the opportunity to support programs that engage patients and residents with socialization and fun activities. Social recreation programs are typically found in residential care, and some examples include preparing a ‘home style breakfast’, joining a group on a bus trip, and arts and crafts. If you are interested in engaging patients and residents in fun and playful activities, these roles may be of interest to you.
