Dolphin Companions/ECS, formerly Dolphins of Delaware Valley

  • 208 people are interested

Dolphin Companions are looking for wonderful volunteers (in the greater Philadelphia area) to visit forgotten residents of a local nursing home or retirement facility. We ask you to spend just one hour a week (time and day of your choosing and it can be different each week) to brighten the life of a senior confined to a very small world. They are desperately hungry for any kind of companionship. They have all lived fascinating lives and would love the chance to talk about it. Unfortunately, our culture casts these folks aside at their age and treats them as useless no matter what they did in their more active years. Please find just one hour a week to show these seniors that their life is not forgotten.Most facilities now require that you be 18 years of age or accompanied by an adult. This opportunity is not for "community service" or a one time or summer activity, but rather creating a friendship with an elder citizen.
