Volunteers with Senior Services - Life Care are active in nursing homes, assisted living, adult day health care and PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly). Volunteer work assignments include (but are not limited to): assisting with religious services, special events and parties, scheduled group recreation programs, providing entertainment programs and community outings. Volunteers also help by delivering mail, visiting and talking to individuals (conversing, helping them write letters and/or reading to them), passing fresh ice/water, or helping out with office tasks. The Junior Volunteer program is a year-round program for students who volunteer in the summer program.
