Norfolk County RSVP is seeking volunteers age 55 and older for the following positions:
Help at Information desk with other volunteers or wheel a veteran to an appointment.
Surgical Liaison (Thursday 10-2 need 1 volunteer)
Volunteer Liaison between Recovery Room Nursing Staff and families waiting in the Surgical Waiting Room. Often times this position will be combined with a friendly visiting/ Guide job or other volunteer position.
Group Guide (as needed)
When school groups come to visit Veterans, a guide will bring the group around the wards and determine if a vet wants to have visitors and splits the group. The Guide needs to be thick skinned and not take a gruff 'no’ or repeated 'nos’ as personal rejection by the veteran.
Friendly Bedside Visitors (T, Th, Fri currently needed)
Usually done in conjunction with another volunteer job during one shift. Go room to room to visit sick vets. Offer coffee and conversation. A visitor needs to be thick skinned and not take a 'no’ or repeated 'nos’ personally.
Courtesy Cart (weekday shift 2-3 hours between 7am-2pm)
Deliver local paper to the wards. Take cart of snacks and drinks to the Hospital Waiting Area. Done in conjunction with other volunteer positions.
We'll work with your schedule.
