Volunteers will visit patients and read, play games, watch movies, chat, look through photo albums, wheel patients to meals, wheel them outside, enjoy batting a balloon around, blowing bubbles, or a myriad of things to provide companionship to elderly members of our communities.
Volunteers will help in the office with organizing, record-keeping, taking notes, and a myriad of other small tasks that help keep the office running and enable staff members to spend more time on patient care.
Volunteers will provide clerical support for our chaplain and will work with families that have lost loved ones. These volunteers may visit with spouse after death of loved one and just be there to listen. They also assist in any way with our Memorial Services and make Care Calls to just check in.
Jr Volunteer Program
This program allows our patients to interact with children between10-12. These children will read to our patients, talk with them and enjoy them as if they were their own grandparents. For the young adults (TEEN PROGRAM) 13-17 they will be capturing the life stories of our patients and our goal is to compile their stories and create a keepsake book, Bringing Generations Together.
Midnight Angels - A Midnight Angel is a non-medical person who is trained to provide emotional support to the patient and caregivers in the last hours of life.
This program brings the volunteer’s to the patient’s bedside so that no one dies alone. Everyone does not always have a family and our goal is to offer emotional support for patients and their families.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
