Help our residents attend and participate at in-house recreational activities such as bingo, games, dances, musical performances and special meals as well as off-grounds recreation such as trips to athletic events, the zoo, museums, Botanical Center, IMAX Theater and shopping.
Become a Friend to Vet
What does that mean… volunteers will be a “Friend” to residents that are without family and have few
visitors. The volunteer will be asked to come in a few times a month to visit with the resident for a short time providing support, friendship and encouragement while going for a stroll, talking, reading, writing
letters, playing games, getting a snack at the Canteen or going to the Library to check out a book or DVD.
Become a FRIEND today—you will get as much out of it as they do!!
WHAT VOLUNTEERING MEANS~
- Giving back to a veteran who protected our freedom
- Showing a veteran that their sacrifice for our country is not forgotten
- Taking the time to make a veteran smile
- Giving attention to a veteran’s spouse to say thank you for the support she has given her husband who served
The veterans have served all of us through their military duty. They have fought battles, manned defenses and, often, made great sacrifices for us. As they and their spouses enter the personal battles of disability, illness, and old age, it is our turn to serve them.
