Want to feel good about yourself and help someone else at the same time? Our trained volunteers meet new people, develop new skills, discover new experiences, and most importantly, participate as a member of a dynamic team working to make life a little easier for those age 60 and older and those who care for them.
Be a part of a two person leadership team offering 6 - 8 week group experiences to those in your community. Group Leaders receive training and will present evidence based health information and facilitate group discussion and individual goal setting. This is a great way to increase your own knowledge and share it with others at the same time. Select the curriculum which matches your interest:
Trained and insured volunteer Money Managers spend a few hours a month with older adults who need assistance with budgeting, paying bills, and keeping track of financial matters.
Trained and certified volunteers meet individually with nursing home or rest home residents to provide assistance with advocacy, problem solving, and conflict resolution. Ombudsman volunteers visit with residents at least every other week to listen to their concerns and address issues affecting the quality of their care.
