About

Brookdale Marlton Crossing is currently in search of volunteers with a passion to enrich lives and have fun while doing so. This community's residents have rich histories and stories that are worthy of being heard, especially through one-on-one interactions.

Some examples of one-on-one volunteer work includes: reading to a resident who is sight or memory-impaired, helping a resident with arthritis write a letter, or simply visiting with a resident who is not as comfortable in a larger group activity setting. These interactions would take place at a common area in the community. For this type of volunteer work, we would require a background check and health screening (and parental permission for all those under 18 years old).

Many of our residents were avid participants of the performing or visual arts; residents would love to see more group performances at the community. We also encourage groups to assist with projects like our spring/summer garden, painting classes, discussion groups, or assisting with board games. Visits or performances by community groups help create a robust intergenerational experience for residents. These groups or persons would be considered visitors are exempt from background checks and health screening requirements.

Brookdale Marlton Crossing will provide an orientation and all tools needed for successful volunteer interactions with residents.
