About

Are you a warm, caring and compassionate person? Do you enjoy visiting with elderly?

We are looking for volunteers aged 18 and up who are able to contribute at least one 4 hour shift per week to visit, engage, read to and play games with patients who do not typically have visitors. The goal of this program is to reduce the risk of isolation in patients who have no friends or family nearby and increase socializing and cognitive stimulation.
