The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Senior Hub Adult Day Service is looking for caring individuals to be a Best Friend to one of our participants at the Adult Day Service. Most of our participants are seniors with some memory issues. As a best friend, you would get to know one of these individuals well. For about an hour a week, you would come to our center and spend time with your best friend. You might play a game, go for a walk, do an individual craft, or just visit and get to know each other. The Adult Day Service is open from 730 am - 530pm Monday through Friday and as a best friend volunteer you would pick the time that works best for you. You would be assigned a best friend based on the time you choose and the participant’s attendance in the program at that time. The busiest times of the day here are from 10 -2:30, and the best times for best friends to visit is from 9:00 - 10:00 in the morning, at lunch time or right after lunch (12:00 - 1:30) or after 2:30, but you could come whenever it is most convenient for you. The Adult Day Service is at 10190 Bannock St Ste 104, just off of I-25 and 104 th Ave in Northglenn. If you are interested, please contact Nancy Kingsbury, Program Director at 303 287 2400.
