Volunteer Services

Volunteers at Dearness are an important part of our Care Team.  Volunteers work with our residents in a number of ways:


  • Assisting in Resident-focused programs, providing leadership and organization.
  • Share your musical talents by providing entertainment.
  • Visiting with residents who need one to one and small group interactions
  • Palliative Care volunteer positions are available. (Palliative Care training would be an asset).
  • Assisting with special events and monthly theme programs.
  • Assisting with special projects.
  • Accompanying residents on outings from the home.
  • Fundraising events.  Be a member of our Dearness Home Auxiliary.

** Due to the commitment that we make in selecting our volunteers and in training them for their new role, we ask that volunteers commit to our residents a minimum of one hour per week for at least six months.
