Calling all Volunteers! As we draw closer to opening the doors we are looking for volunteers to help out at the home. We are most in need of volunteers to be:
- Caregivers to help provide hands on care for our guests. Hands on care includes bathing, dressing, and other activities of daily living. Sometimes our caregivers will need to give medications.
- Companions will be there to sit with someone, talk, read to them, fluff their pillows or get them a drink.
Once open we will need help with the administrative side of things. Sending out thank you letters to our donors, helping with fundraising events such as the Fall Gala and Spring celebrations.
No matter what you volunteer to do our volunteers will be there to support our guests and families. Offer a smile, cup of coffee, a hand to hold or an ear to listen, no gesture is too small.
We are offering Volunteer training for all our volunteers. The first session is in early February. The topics are about communication with guests and families and what physical changes may be seen as someone is ending their journey.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org (or click the green button in the upper right column) or call 315-651-8527.
