(VIDEO) Volunteering at Village Green is the ‘most rewarding thing I’ve ever done,’ says Jeanne Irvine

For 22 years, Jeanne has been donating her time to help residents and staff members at the Greater Napanee long-term care home.

She recalls how she started her volunteering career.

“At the time, I was thinking about retiring and I wanted something to fill my time,” Jeanne recalls. “So one of my friends worked here and said that I should try (volunteering).”

Jeanne says her favourite aspects of volunteering at Village Green have been meeting people and helping residents.

And there has been a lot of learning along the way, she says.

“I learned a lot of patience. Dealing with the older people you find out their needs quickly,” she says.
