Care Center Volunteers

 Friendships Needed!

Hospice Volunteers

The Care Center offers many activities that the community can volunteer/participate in!

  • Feeding Assistance Volunteers-  This is one of the greatest needs we have in the care center. We offer training twice a year and sharing mealtime with the residents can be a very rewarding experience!
  •  Manicure Volunteers- this involves removing the old polish and applying the new and can be done at any time.
  • Bingo Volunteers- On Sunday mornings at 10:00 am, we play bingo and could always use extra players or a new caller!
  • Crafting Volunteers- We have two crafts a month and often need more helping hands; it often requires gluing and/or simple cooking skills. If you have a special skill you would like to share with our residents we are always interested in new activities!
  • Evening Companions- After the sun sets can be a very busy time for our staff and a difficult time for our residents. Just having someone to sit and hold the hand of a resident can make all the difference!
  • Story tellers. Story Listeners- The Care Center is full of stories, and visitors are always welcome to come to tell stories or hear some.
