We are looking for an individual who would come into our Rakhma Homes and conduct morning stretches and simple exercises with our residents. Exercises can also include leading groups through YouTube guided exercise activites.

The ideal exercise leader is comfortable leading a group and can volunteer with minimal direction. A weekly commitment would be preferred, but we can accommodate a specific schedule. We will provide training in Alzheimer's and dementia. This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone looking to work in the healthcare field!

We have 4 homes located in St. Paul, Minneapolis, Golden Valley and Minnetonka. Our mission is dedicated to preserving the dignity of individuals with memory loss by providing loving, compassionate care in a familiar home setting. Our mission of care follows a person-centered care model that is unique to each individual's needs and interests.

Description

Rakhma Inc. has 4 residential homes in the Twin Cities area. Each home have a capacity of 10-15 residents.

Rakhma is not "a home"; rather, it is home, where friends sing together, take walks together, and forgive repeated stories. At Rakhma, families and friends are invited to drop in for a visit and all are encouraged to participate in the daily activities of the house: watering plants, peeling potatoes, folding towels, or simply enjoying the company of others.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to volunteer at Rakhma Homes.
