How You Can Help

Be a volunteer

Vitanova volunteers fall into two categories: 

  • those who assist in the organization and execution of an event, such as our annual open house, part of our Summerfest in late August, or our Celebration of Life in the fall. These we term occasional volunteers, as their service is limited to a specific event of short duration.
  • those longer-term volunteers who provide some sort of service for an extended period of time—perhaps they prepare lunch and dinner one day a week or once every other week for a number of months.

Whichever category applies to you, please click here to access our electronic application form. Complete this initial application  and then press ‘send’, or download the form, complete and scan it and send to Our volunteer coordinator will be in touch to arrange an interview, to learn how you want to help. 

Make a donation, bequest, or memorial

Vitanova is a charitable organization that relies on your donations to supplement provincial and local funding. Some donations come in the form of bequests, others in memory of a deceased family member or friend.

Here’s how your donation can help:

$20 will cover the cost of a snack provided to all domiciliary residents before bedtime.

$50 pays for housekeeping costs for a day: cleaning supplies, paper towels, toilet paper, and so forth.

$100 buys fresh meat or fish and produce for a lunch served to 50 clients

$150 will cover the cost of all utilities (heat, electricity, etc.) for one day.
