About

Providence ElderPlace is an innovative program of services for older adults. Providence ElderPlace helps older adults remain as healthy and independent as possible in the community for as long as possible.

Here is a volunteer opportunity to start a new program to help Stroke survivors stay independent in their communities. Aimed at Baby Boomers, the volunteer would facilitate a group providing support and encouragement to Stroke survivors. The group would continue for 6 weeks, minimum and could be ongoing.
