Volunteer Programme

Silver Stream Healthcare Group accepts volunteers through our Volunteer Programme.

We have weekly visits from established volunteers, who provide companionship for residents. We also have a number of volunteers in the vetting process who are awaiting clearance to begin volunteering.

We have close links with local school students who visit weekly, during the school year. Students are excellent volunteers in the residential care environment as the programme facilitates inter-generational communication which is beneficial to both younger & older people. Volunteers offer companionship and will often undertake a project or introduce a new initiative under the supervision of a senior Care Team member.

Residents also benefit from close community links, with local entertainment, drama & choir groups regularly visiting.

We welcome all relatives, friends and visitors to the home to become a volunteer. Any contribution, no matter how great or small is appreciated by residents. Volunteering can be as simple as reading a newspaper to a group of residents, to teaching a class on flower arranging.

If a member of your family would like to become a volunteer, or you would like to like to receive a volunteer visit please let your Care Team know.

All volunteers are subject to Garda Vetting and must comply with Silver Stream Healthcare Group’s Volunteer Programme Policy & Guidelines.
