Everyone needs something to look forward to and everyone enjoys some friendship. You can be the person to brighten someone's day when you visit a resident in a long term care facility. Visits help to stimulate new interests and provide a break from the routine. During a visit, volunteers can read to residents, take them for a walk or a wheelchair ride, sit and talk, or simply listen. Volunteer visitors bring a little of the outside world to people who may not get regular visits from family and friends. You'll benefit too, learning all about the life experiences of the people you visit.
If you'd like to help brighten someone's day, become a Life Enrichment volunteer. No special qualifications are needed - just the desire to serve as a friend and share your time. Life Enrichment volunteers establish a one-on-one relationship with four or more residents of a nursing home or assisted living facility. Click HERE
