LITA has an on-going need for Friendly Visitors at LITA served nursing facilities in El Cerrito,
El Sobrante, Martinez and Pleasant Hill. On average over half of residents have no family visiting. Family members out of state often call LITA to request a volunteer Visitor /Helper to drop in once a week or more if volunteer schedule allows. LITA volunteers serves in this way at skilled nursing Hospitals.
One of the most successful ice breakers is to bring your gentle well behaved pet. Animals are so loving and even residents who can no longer speak or hear can instantly feel the love of a sweet pet.
The staff at this LITA served facility are wonderful and will provide plenty of support and advice. LITA is in close touch with the Activity Director who stays well acquainted with the long term residents and know family, so can also be a source of more information and future support for the volunteer.
