Do you have an hour each week you could dedicate to helping a local senior?
The Volunteers of America are looking for a few dedicated volunteers to connect with local seniors and encourage them to maintain the Healthy Moves exercise program.
Healthy Moves is an evidence based program proven to help seniors regain lost strength and balance. An integral part of the program is maintaining weekly contact with the seniors and encouraging them to continue participation. We do this by providing them with weekly phone calls from a friendly volunteer.
This is a great opportunity for someone interested in gaining valuable experience working with seniors, or an individual who is exploring exercise science, nutrition or wellness as a career path. The phone calls can be made from your home or at the local Volunteers of America office.
We will be offering training to our volunteers in motivational interviewing and senior health. This way everyone feels comfortable connecting with seniors and enjoys their weekly calls!
