This is a truly rewarding volunteer opportunity with lots of interaction with seniors who are in rehab after a hospital stay. Many of the folks we visit do not have nearby family or friends and without our volunteers they would have no interaction at all with anyone but staff.
They love to share stories and it helps them pass their week knowing volunteers from all over care enough to come and share some time with them. We are here regularly and its a chance to sort of adopt a senior who needs you by way of regular visits. It really doesn't get much better or more worthwhile than this. If you have a dog or a cat many of them would be thrilled to pet it and play with it and you are allowed to bring your pets
People give this a try you will be enchanted I am sure. Meet the group leader on the sofa just as you enter the building on the right
