Friendly Visitor Program:
Being a FRIENDLY VISITOR is FUN and SERVES a GREAT PURPOSE! Many nursing home and assisted living facility residents never receive visitors. Friendly Visitors are individuals and groups who volunteer in Dallas County (Texas) long-term care homes to visit one-on-one with residents and help with group activities, entertainment, and basic beautification projects.Friendly Visitors help combat the loneliness and isolation that is so prevalent in these facilities.
No matter what your age, YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Children under the age of 18 may require adult supervision. Friendly visitors can volunteer on weekdays, weekends, or holidays based on staff availability.When volunteering solo or individually, a criminal background check and in some cases a TB test are required and are administered by the facility staff.When volunteering as a group, the facility will often waive the application and background check.
Make a POSITIVE IMPACT in the lives of long-term care residents! Your willingness to SERVE our most often forgotten senior population is greatly appreciated. For more information, contact Marsha Evans, Program Coordinator, at 214-823-5700 or email@example.com.
