We are actively seeking compassionate and dependable volunteers aged 15+ to serve on an ongoing basis at DeGraff Skilled Nursing Facility, one of Kaleida Health's long-term care facilities. Volunteers make a huge difference to our residents and staff! Volunteers can expect to work with the Activities Department and help with games, crafts, events, and 1-to-1 interaction to promote overall social wellbeing. This is an excellent opportunity for retirees looking to give back, get more engaged, or share their knowledge with the community. It's also great for students who are considering a career in the medical field or those looking for service-learning hours. We ask that volunteers be willing to commit to weekly or bi-monthly shifts for at least one school semester or four-month period.

HighPointe on Michigan is a 300-bed facility dedicated to sub-acute rehabilitation and traditional long-term care. It includes a floor for memory care, a physical therapy department, a ventilator unit, and a pediatric unit.

About Kaleida Health Long-Term Care

Location:

1031 Michigan Ave, Buffalo, NY 14203, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to advance the health of our community by offering long-term, 24-hour care to those who cannot care for themselves due to physical, emotional, or mental health problems. We aim to provide quality health care, assistance with daily activities, and emotional support in an environment geared toward independent, dignified living.

Description

Kaleida Health operates two long-term care facilities: HighPointe on Michigan in Buffalo and DeGraff Skilled Nursing Facility in North Tonawanda.

HighPointe on Michigan is a 300-bed facility located directly next to Buffalo General Hospital and the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. HighPointe provides varying levels of care for both the adult and pediatric population, including ventilator-dependent or medically complex care, subacute care, dementia care, and traditional long-term care.

DeGraff Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing Facility is an 80-bed facility, with one floor dedicated to subacute rehabilitation and one to long-term residents. Residents receive expert care and personal attention in comfortable, home-like surroundings. In both facilities (colloquially referred to as nursing homes), individual plans of care are developed by a professional team to meet the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of each resident.
