Volunteer with Us

Make a Difference

If you have time to give and are interested in helping, we invite you to volunteer with Metta Lifestyles. We offer flexible hours to suit your schedule and the opportunity to brighten someone’s day. 

Our volunteers range from students looking to complete high school requirements to interns gaining important relevant work experience to newly retired seniors themselves. 

 

Residents welcome our volunteers’ effort and eagerness to be part of their lives.

Queens Estate Volunteer Opportunities

At Queens Estate Retirement Residence, we offer our volunteers a wide range of opportunities to help make a difference in the lives of our residents. You will find that being part of our organization offers many rewards. You will have a chance to meet new and inspiring people, develop fresh ideas, use your skills or learn new ones, but most of all you will be an important part of our community.


Discover the joy and fulfillment of volunteering with seniors. There are many ways you can help:

  • Spend one-on-one time with a senior to provide companionship for someone who doesn’t get many visitors.

  • Help out at mealtimes by serving food, helping residents or bringing a sunny smile and conversation to the table.

  • Bring your travel stories to share and listen to theirs; many have travelled the world!

  • Bring your musical talents and perform for small or large groups.

  • Start a club such as: scrapbooking, knitting, book club; the list is endless.

  • Play cards or board games one-on-one or with a group of seniors and learn about their interesting lives in the process.

 

Requirements:

  • Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. If you are under 16, consent from a parent/guardian is required.

  • Complete a volunteer application form and submit a resume along with two references

  • A Police Records Check for Vulnerable Sector must be obtained prior to start date. This takes approximately 3-5 weeks and there is no charge

  • A 2 Step Tuberculosis Test is required before and there should be no charge

  • A negative Covid test within 3 days of your start date
