Roles and Responsibilities

Health TAPESTRY volunteers can be involved in a wide range of activities. No matter what they are doing, our volunteers are working to help people stay healthier for longer by gathering information about clients’ life and health goals.

In Hamilton, the McMaster Family Health Team (McMaster FHT) is working with Health TAPESTRY volunteers who:

  • go with a fellow volunteer to visit clients where they live
  • gather information using an iPad and Health TAPESTRY technology, like the TAP-App
  • help clients set-up a personal health record (PHR) with the online kindredPHR
  • help motivate a client to reach their health goals
  • connect clients to community resources
