Visit Elderly Folks in Rehab

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

    The meet up was great, my daughter and I went and had a really nice time with the older folks and the other volunteers. We definitely would like to go again, or do another volunteer activity.

    Hi Bill, is this a recurring thing? I live nearby and would be interested in going there another time.

    So sorry to cancel last minute but I woke up with a sore throat and bit of a fever. Hopefully it's not too short of notice for someone on the waiting list to fill in. I just don't want to get these folks sick :-/.

    Hoping a spot opens up (hopefully not 5 mins before the event though)

    I have 2 dogs who would be perfect for this type of activity. I will bring one of them.
