Current Volunteer Opportunities

Westmeath Residential & Nursing Home

Westmeath Residential and Nursing Care Home (Westmeath) are looking for a Volunteer Treasurer to join their Board of Trustees. Originally established in 1910, Westmeath’s current location at 28 Pitts Bay Road, Pembroke was purchased in the late 1940s with major expansions taking place in 1985 and 1998.

Westmeath is a registered charity that owns and operates a comprehensive facility that cares for 64 Residents from all aspects of the community at various levels of care. Independent living, assisted living, life care, memory care and skilled nursing care are provided under one roof. In addition to providing care for full time Residents, Westmeath also offers Convalescent Care for individuals who are recovering from surgery or illness, Respite Care and a Day Activities Program. Westmeath was the first non-government affiliated elder care facility to be accredited by the Bermuda National Standards Committee.

About the Role

Westmeath’s Board of Trustees is comprised of volunteers with a wide range of knowledge and expertise.  As a member of the Board of Trustees, the Volunteer Treasurer works closely with the Chair and the Executive Director to: 

  • Assist with the creation of an annual budget, 
  • Liaise with the third party accounting services provider to ensure that the books and records are in order,
  • Present periodic financial reports to the Westmeath board, and
  • Coordinate the annual audit with the charity’s auditors.

The Treasurer is expected to provide periodic policy input on how to approach transactions and reporting to assist the Board in making budget decisions.  The Treasurer is also a member of the Board’s Executive Committee

It is anticipated that the individual will need to consider an average time commitment of approximately 3 hours per month to serve in the role, which includes attendance at monthly board meetings to present to the Board updated financial information and to participate in discussions on Westmeath’s finances and governance.
