About

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 Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and are now establishing other partneship facilities in Bucks Co. etc. 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. .Most facilities now require that you be 18 years of age or accompanied by an adult. Contact me for more information or check out our website www.dolphinsofdelawarevalley.org.
