A volunteer visiting with two of our seniors
This is a great way to spend a bit more time with an individual senior, get to know them better -- and they really love it! We work with over 550 seniors annually and many of them are very isolated and have limited opportunity to interact with someone. They have seen so much and have amazing stories and experiences to share. We organize visits for groups on Saturdays, but can also get you connected to a senior any other time that is convenient for you. This is a truly rewarding way to spend an couple hours of your time and it makes such a huge difference to the seniors.
