Are you a high school student looking for volunteering experiences in your area? Horizon Health Network is proud to bring back the Good Night Program for all students who are at least 15 years old and living in the Miramichi, Upper River Valley, and Fredericton areas (University/College students in Fredericton only at this time).
What is the Goodnight Program? It involves a friendly visit with patients offering a warm blanket, bedtime snack, game of cards, reading a book, conversation, or helping settle in for a good night’s rest. This program benefits both the patient and our volunteers. It provides the patient with meaningful interactions, conversations, and company while allowing volunteers the opportunity to gain experience in a healthcare setting. This also provides the volunteers with a connection to obtain references for employment, scholarships, and bursaries.
