About

Make time in your schedule to give back. Befriend a senior citzen and become their companion. Horton's Personal Care Home is interested in finding individuals who want to socially interact and engage with our elderly residents. Many residents at our facility are without family and friends, so people who are committed to make regular visits are encouraged to apply. Each visit is an opportunity to offer your time and company to show that you care and provide stimulation and activity to the elderly. Elderly Companion Volunteers:

  • Play cards and board games
  • Read and discuss books
  • Engage in conversation
  • Create art projects/drawings
  • Intiate rudimentary physical or mental exercises
  • Play a musical instrument for them
