If you are at least 18 yrs. and are bilingual (Spanish) and have one hour, once a week to spend with an elderly person in an assisted living facility in the Fairhills neighborhood of the City of Philadelphia (zip code 19140) or close, then we need you! The program Dolphin Companions (formerly Dolphins of Delaware Valley) has been in existence since 1978. We match volunteers with individual residents in a senior community, so the volunteer visiting them for about one hour once a week (on the day and time of the volunteer's choosing) give the resident something to look forward to and feel that they matter to someone. We are looking for volunteers over 18, that may be interested in learning more about this beneficial opportunity for you to give of your time and be surprised by how much you will receive in knowledge and appreciation of this older generation.
