Have you resolved to make a difference in your community and help others? Consider giving back to the community by volunteering at Kenmore Mercy Hospital or McAuley Residence, members of Catholic Health.
Kenmore Mercy Hospital’s Cardiac Patient Care Unit is in need of volunteers during the day for transport patients via wheelchair to and from tests within the hospital.
The hospital’s Endoscopy Unit is in need of volunteers to transport patients from the unit to the lobby and into their car at discharge.
Both positions need someone capable of pushing a wheelchair and guiding patients when they get out of the wheelchair from anytime between 8 am - 3 pm.
McAuley Residence is seeking volunteers to help out in the activities department: helping those with poor vision during bingo, serving residents during socials, reading to residents, and passing out magazines, puzzles, movies, etc. They are also seeking skilled musicians to perform for patients.
All volunteers receive special training, followed by ongoing guidance and support.
Individuals interested in volunteering should contact Lynn Overbeck, CAVS, director of Volunteer Services firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (716) 447-6188.
