  • 13 people are interested

FriendshipWorks is looking for volunteers to lead arts and crafts groups in nursing homes in Boston and Brookline as part of the Relaxing Through the Arts Program. This is a time for conversation and doing simple arts and crafts projects together. We will provide examples and a starter kit for each volunteer. In this way friendships are created through shared interests and activities and also, fun and enjoyment.

FriendshipWorks is a Boston based non-profit whose mission is to end social isolation and improve the quality of life of elders in Boston and Brookline. Be a friend to an isolated senior and bring joy and art in to their life!

Mission Statement

FriendshipWorks, formerly MATCH-UP Interfaith Volunteers, recruits and trains caring individuals to assist elders living in the Boston area. Our mission is to decrease the isolation that too often comes with age and disability, to promote well being, and to enhance the quality of life of elders. We have seen firsthand the difference ongoing companionship and support can make both for our care recipients and our volunteers.

Description

FriendshipWorks offers a variety of support services to elders in the Boston area. We make friendship matches between volunteers and elders. Volunteers often provide companionship, read aloud, take walks, or assist someone with errands. In addition to ongoing companionship, FriendshipWorks provides one-time assistance such as volunteer escorts to and from medical appointments and respite for family caregivers.
