Spend an hour a week visiting with an elder in his/her home. Talk, have lunch together, go for walks, become a FRIEND. Ethos is looking for a volunteer who speaks Cantonese to visit with an elder in Jamaica Plain. Only know a little bit of Hindi? Hone your skills by visiting with and engaging in conversations in Cantonese.
The elders we serve through the Friendly Visiting program are typically very isolated and a language barrier only increases their isolation. Your weekly visits will brighten their day and improve their mental well-being. Make a new friend and sign-up today!
