Volunteer My Time

Volunteer With Us

Volunteers play an important role at St. John's Home for Elderly Persons.

They help the Home carry out services such as social-recreational activities for our Residents, gardening, cleaning and general maintenance, and other services so that our caregivers may focus on attending to the daily needs of our residents.

Whether you are volunteering as an individual or in a group, we welcome you!

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, activities which involve direct physical interaction with our residents are prohibited.

For other volunteering requests, kindly fill up our Online Volunteer Application Form and we will get back to you shortly.

Volunteering Opportunities

When the time comes when we can welcome visitors again, we invite you and your friends to volunteer at the Home.  These are our volunteering needs:

Befriender and Motivator

Enjoy uplifting others and cheering them up? You can inject good cheer and optimism in our Residents simply by talking to them, and infecting them with your positive outlook of life.

If you play Chinese chess, please come and challenge our elderly Residents to a game. We have a few Residents who love to play Chinese chess.
