Under the direction of our Chaplain, the Care Friend Volunteers provide an extra dimension of caring for residents who are discouraged, lonely or have no family visitors. Social visits may combine some devotional elements if both the resident and the volunteer are comfortable with that .
Training is provided through an easy - to-read manual in your own home. Devotional support materials are also available. Buddy system is available for first visits with the residents. Visits with residents are flexible although afternoons are generally best.

Mission Statement: Abundant Life (R) '"I came that they may have life, and have it more abundantly." John 10:10b. These are the words that guide our ministry of care for our seniors. Regardless of their level of independence, health or financial circumstances, we strive to help all seniors enjoy the richness and fullness of life. A vital element in carrying out this mission of Abundant Life (R) is the volunteer from the outside community who comes to serve our elders.
Volunteers at Passavant Community help residents experience an Abundant Life(R) while also enjoying being a part of this friendly community. Passavant is located in the beautiful and historic town of Zelienople, PA. just 30 miles north of Pittsburgh. We are faith-based and non-profit and have served elders for over 100 years. Our community consists of more than 600 residents living on 42 beautiful acres in cottages, apartments, personal care apartments and nursing care.
Passavant Community is rated as a 5-star nursing home by the Federal Government's Center for Medicare and Medicaid Studies. While we are proud of that rating, we are equally proud of the friendly community atmosphere of our retirement community.
