VIDEO: Pleasant Meadow volunteer Bessie Couchman: ‘As long as I am able, I will be here’

Bessie Couchman began volunteering at Pleasant Meadow Manor a few years ago when a volunteer friend asked her to join her one day during a visit to the Norwood long-term care home.

As a volunteer, Bessie provides spiritual support to residents, noting her favourite part of being a volunteer is simply spending time with people at Pleasant Meadow Manor.

“I just enjoy meeting with the people, (and) as long as I am able, I will be here,” she says.
