Volunteering benefits both residents and staff, and can be a rewarding experience for you too! Ways to help include:
- Adopt a grandparent. Some residents love to just sit and visit. Others who can’t see well appreciate having someone read to them.
- Assist with Bingo or other large-group games
- Play the piano or other instrument. It doesn’t have to be an organized, hour-long activity. Even some quiet music during meals is a welcome diversion from routine.
- Outdoor wheelchair rides around the campus grounds, weather permitting
- Have a baby or toddler? Call our Activities Department and ask to be added to the schedule for Baby Joy. The time commitment is about an hour or less every few months.
- Play one-on-one games with a resident, such as checkers or dominoes.
- Read the newspaper and discuss current events with a resident or small group of residents.
- Bring in your well-behaved pet to visit residents who had their own pets. They’ll enjoy reminiscing with you!
- Providing special music or entertainment
- Transportation and doctor visit assistance
- Accompanying our residents to church and other social events
- Youth group singers/visits
- and many more…
Volunteers are welcome anytime, but late afternoons and early evenings, which are busy times for our nursing staff and highly disruptive times for some of our residents, are particularly good times.
Volunteers are invited to our biannual Volunteer Appreciation Banquet. You and the gift of your time is very much appreciated!
