The Dolphin Companions, formerly The Dolphins of Delaware Valley, is a non-profit organization where volunteers visit the elderly in nursing homes on a one- to-one basis.We are serving in Berks, Delaware, Montgomery, Bucks Co. as well as Center City. The commitment is approximately one hour once a week and a criminal background check is required. This is not for community service or a summer opportunity, but rather to develop a friendhip with a lonely elderly citizen. You get matched with just one elderly citizen in a retirement or a nursing homec, and you visit about once a week on the day and time that suits you (can vary each week) for about one hour.Contact me for more information or check out our website www.dolphinsofdelawarevalley.org.
