Regular Volunteering

Our volunteers are part of the family and we like to take care of them.

Without the contributions of about a hundred volunteers, La Maison Aube-Lumière simply could not function!

Areas where you can make a difference:

The role of care volunteers is first to assist the attendants and nurses in the care they provide to patients (mobilization, hygiene, etc.).

Care volunteers are also responsible for taking patient meal orders, changing beds, answering call bells, etc.

Of course, these tasks create a bond of trust and a certain closeness with patients which can give rise to moments of confiding, when active listening is required. However, care volunteers do not have the specific task of providing accompaniment or psychosocial or spiritual support. We have professional staff dedicated to these roles.

The shifts are as follows:

Morning: 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.;
Afternoon: 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.;
Evening: 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Volunteers are needed every day of the week, including Saturdays and Sundays.

As part of a great team, you have modern and functional facilities for washing and storing pots and dishes You are also in contact with the patients while delivering meals to their rooms.

The shifts are as follows:

Morning: 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Evening: 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

You will ensure the cleanliness of the bedding and lingerie of La Maison, thus offering great comfort for our patients.

Occasional Volunteering

Some prefer to contribute to La Maison Aube-Lumière by giving time for our fundraising activities. To help maintain our ability to give FREE care, this contribution is just as important as any other.

Each year, approximately 200 VOLUNTEERS take part in fundraising campaigns for La Maison Aube-Lumière. They mainly contribute to the following activities:

  • Poinsettia campaign (from mid-November to mid-December);
  • Thrift store for ladies (in spring and fall for 5 weeks);
  • Envol evening (every year in April).
