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

Each day, over 100 residents and patients make use of our rehabilitation program, where we offer physical, occupational, speech, and restorative therapies. Assist patients and residents with transport and gaiting. Volunteer shifts are Mondays through Fridays, 9:00-11:30 a.m., and 1:00-3:30 p.m.


ITEMS NEEDED

Good communication skills and willingness to spend one-on-one and group time with seniors.

 

 


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Volunteers must be 18 and older. Please note all volunteers must complete an orientation/training and are required to take a Tuburculosis Test (as we are a skilled nursing facility).
