Meet Anna – volunteer at Trinity Village Care Centre since August 2018.

“My husband moved to the Care Centre and I started volunteering right away. I wanted to be closer to him.” Anna started as a dining room assistant and quickly started helping in other ways, whether through dancing with the residents or baking goodies for the staff.

When her husband passed, Anna continued to volunteer three to four times a week. “I formed a special bond with the residents, being here feels like a second home.”

“Whether it’s with a hug or a joke, it doesn’t take much to make someone smile. Just taking the time to show that you care about someone can go a long way.”

“I see a lot as a volunteer, and something that surprised me is how dedicated the PSWs and nurses are to their jobs. It’s hard work, and they continue to show up and put their hearts into what they do.”

When she’s not volunteering, Anna is busy with her five grandchildren, reading, cross-stitching, and watching Hallmark Channel movies. “I know those movies are sappy and silly, but they all have the same ending: a happily ever after…I had my happily ever after so I think everybody else should!”
