The Auxiliary is a self governed group of individuals who provide volunteer service, fundraising
initiatives and special event programs for the residents of our three long-term care homes. Many Auxiliaries exist throughout our area, in hospitals and health care facilities as well as in communities across the Country. A seperate entity to the home, they partner with the home to provide funds for
special projects, needed equipment or special programming which enhance the resident's quality of life.
The County of Elgin homes host a thriving Auxiliary in each of the long-term care homes; Bobier Villa,
Elgin Manor and Terrace Lodge. The Auxiliaries meet one time per month in the home and gather collectively throughout the County of Elgin for annual events and meetings with other local Auxilairies.
The Terrace Lodge and Elgin Manor Auxiliaries maintain a daily tuck shop, serving refreshments to the residents, visitors and staff daily from 2:00pm - 3:00pm. The Bobier Villa Auxiliary run a weekly afternoon Sunday tea from 2:00pm - 3:30pm.
Through successful fundraising the County of Elgin homes Auxiliaries have provided funds for many projects and intiiatives throughout the homes.
The Auxiliary membership and volunteer roster is comprised of a variety of community groups, church organizations and individuals committed to serving others in their community and making a difference in the lives of residents living in long-term care.
