Being a VIRTUAL FRIENDLY VISITOR is FUN and SERVES a GREAT PURPOSE! Many nursing home and assisted living facility residents never receive visitors. Friendly Visitors are compassionate individuals and groups who engage in meaningful activities with residents to build social connections and enhance their quality of life.
Even though in-person visitation from community volunteers is restricted, virtual Friendly Visitor experiences provide safe social distancing opportunities for you, your family, church, corporation, small business, school,college, non-profits, social or civic group to make a positive impact and a big differences in the lives of older adults who are adversely affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
HOW CAN I HELP?
