Ian Anderson House Volunteer

Our Volunteers

Our volunteers bring warmth, kindness and support to the hospice. They perform many day-to-day tasks such as, answering the telephone, and door, taking care of the kitchen by keeping it tidy and preparing light meals. They also provide administrative support when needed. Volunteers also participate in fundraising events that enable us to continue to offer care and support to our residents and families.

For more information, contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Heidi Harrigan at (905) 337-8004 or by e-mail at heidi@ianandersonhouse.com.
