Volunteer at Metta

Make a Difference

Are you interested in volunteering at Metta Lifestyles?

We offer plenty of enlightening and fulfilling opportunities in several areas of our home as well as  flexible hours to suit your schedule. Our volunteers range from students looking to complete high school requirements, interns gaining important work experience, and newly retired seniors themselves. 

Volunteer Opportunities

At Metta Lifestyles, we offer our volunteers a wide range of opportunities to help make a difference in our residents' lives. 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 get involved:

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

  • Help out at mealtime 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

  • Support in our care, administration, or lifestyles departments

  • Start a club such as scrapbooking, knitting, cards and board games, 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



  • Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older

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

  • A Police Records Check for Vulnerable Sector must be obtained before the start date - this takes approximately 3-5 weeks, and there is no charge

  • A 2 Step Tuberculosis Test is required before start date

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