About Us

Alberta Heath Services Home Care Volunteer Program
The goals of our program are:
  • To decrease the social isolation of Home Care clients, thereby increasing their quality of life.
  • To assist clients in maintaining independence and continuing to live in the community.
  • To provide clients with moments of happiness in the present and something to look forward to in the immediate future.
  • To provide an enriching experience for volunteers, as well as the clients they assist.
We have the following positions available:
  • Community Visitors – Volunteers are matched one-on-one with a client to provide companionship and support independence in the client’s home. Volunteers assist with activities such as going for walks, having coffee, doing crafts, baking, and going to community events.
  • Grocery Shoppers – Volunteers are matched one-on-one with a client to provide support and encourage independence through the task of grocery shopping. Depending on client needs, the volunteer may shop either with or without the client on a weekly or biweekly basis.
  • Medical Drivers – Volunteers provide transportation to and from medical appointments for clients who are unable to access other transportation options in the community. Volunteers may meet several clients over the course of a week or month.
  • Food Bank Drivers – Volunteers are matched with a client who needs a monthly hamper from Edmonton’s Food Bank. This position strictly requires daytime, weekday availability.
