Volunteers are needed at Hartford Hospital to visit with geriatric patients. Our goal is to increase socializing and cognitive stimulation. The volunteers may read to the patient, play table games, crafts, and provide conversation. Volunteers are required to do one three-hour shift every week for at least 6 months.This is an excellent opportunity for individuals interested in careers in Therapeutic Recreation, Human Services, nursing or for career exploration in the healthcare field of geriatric medicine.
