Volunteers at Fairway
Café Frida could not exist without our loyal volunteers. It is they who keep it open and always give service with a smile. Overall, our devoted volunteers give that extra dimension of care that enriches residents’ lives.
The Cycling Without Age program could not exist without them. Experienced volunteers train the new bike pilots. These volunteer pilots fill the rosters for the daily outings that so delight the residents, who once again feel ‘the wind in their hair’ out and about in their community.
Volunteers also hold craft sessions, armchair travel talks, reminiscence sessions and Bingo, amongst many other social interaction contacts. They provide companionable relationships with residents on a one on one basis. Volunteers work closely with the Lifestyle team and augment their activities. As well as Lifestyle and the Café, they also support other Departments including the Board of Directors, administration, care, kitchen and the garden.
Some have been volunteering for years and even decades. Fairway salutes them and deeply appreciates all their enriching efforts. All is done with empathy and kindness. They are a network of goodwill.
