At Eastern Health, we recognize the tremendous work of our volunteers and partners.

Joyful Listening is a highly collaborative program involving long-term care residents, families, health-care professionals, volunteers and the community at-large.

Joyful Listening
Music & Memory

Volunteers are welcome to support the Joyful Listening program. Volunteer opportunities may include maintaining personalized playlists, downloading music, sitting one-on-one with residents to enjoy listening to music, news or stories together, etc.
Volunteer with Eastern Health!

Drives for Personal Listening Devices

Drives have been 
very successful at local high schools, collecting iPods and iTunes cards. Service groups, schools, and large workplaces or organizations provide excellent environments for device drives and a meaningful community project for sponsors.   
Community donations are invaluable to the continued success of the Joyful Listening program. Ongoing community engagement is essential to help maintain Joyful Listening and bring personal listening devices to individuals residing in long-term care facilities. 
If you are interested in holding an iPod drive in support of this program, please contact us at
