HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Society often overlooks adults as they age.  Your involvement helps prevent isolation and reminds older adults that they are still valued and brings joy and purpose to their lives!

DESCRIPTION

Do you have a green thumb? From residents' personal plants in their rooms to our Goodman Building's outdoor garden, you can partner to make sure plants are nurtured and watered. Flexible hours.

*Note: We ask that you commit to 40 years of volunteer service per year.

 


ITEMS NEEDED

Good communication skills, willingness to spend one-on-one time with seniors, experience and interest in gardening


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Children under the age of 14 may need supervision. Please note all volunteers must complete an orientation/training and are required to take a Tuburculosis Test (as we are a skilled nursing facility).
