Volunteer at Eagle Park

About Eagle Park

The Eagle Park Health Care Centre has operated as a multilevel care facility in Qualicum Beach since 1993.

Eagle Park Health Care Facility, in beautiful Qualicum Beach, supports a very active volunteer program, serving the needs of its 75 complex care residents. Eagle Park provides numerous opportunities for volunteer involvement from the community.

Some examples of our programs include: a “Grandbuddy” program with a local elementary school class; a Junior volunteer program with students from Kwalicum Secondary School, and potential university and college students looking to make career decisions in healthcare. Another program is with the local Art community, who help to promote a lending library of art work in our “Art OnThe Move” program.

Learn more about the Eagle Park Health Care Centre on our facility page.
