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!
For other volunteering requests, kindly fill up our Online Volunteer Application Form and we will get back to you shortly.
The Home is blessed to have various volunteer groups conduct spiritual and social-recreational activities for our Residents on a weekly or monthly basis before the pandemic.
