About

Looking for a volunteer opportunity that can work around work, life, and school commitments? Consider becoming an activities cart volunteer at The Center at Northridge! Imagine this: it's your day to come volunteer at Northridge. You arrive at your chosen time, sign in at the front desk, and head upstairs to get your badge and activities cart. As usual, the cart is loaded with games, puzzles, books, magazines, and other items that might of interest to the elderly patients that call Northridge home for the duration of their physical/occupational therapy and recovery. You take the cart, swing by the nurses station to say hi, then start your rounds, going room to room and offering patients a diversion from your cart as well as a little friendly conversation. You visit one lady that is especially chatty, so you spend about 20 minutes in her room talking with her, and hear all about her experiences as one of the first female judges in the state of Colorado. With a smile on your face, you continue your rounds for about an hour. You didn't make it to every single patient room, but you managed to visit quite a few people. You go home knowing that you brought some human interaction, compassion, and conversation to seniors during a tough time in their lives. That feels good. If you're interested in having these types of experiences, please let me know and we'll get you going! Application, on-boarding and background check can all be completed online, and you can begin volunteering in about a week.
