Companionship and Crafts with Elderly

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Huron Valley PACE

Huron Valley PACE(r) provides an alternative to nursing home care for participants - allowing seniors to remain independent in their own homes and communities. Our adult day care for seniors offers respite for the participant's care givers. It assists the participant with medical services, physical/occupational/recreational therapies, meals, nutritional counseling, social work and personal care. Volunteers are needed to provide companionship, friendship and assist with crafts and group games.
