Seeking friendly faces to visit Seniors in Nursing homes and Assisted living

Did you know that COVID 19 hit our nursing homes and assisted livings this past year ? To try and prevent the spread of this virus, our Gov and the federal regulators, closed all facilities to the public from March 13, 2020 until March 10, 2021. Residents were isolated and often left alone in their rooms with very little outside interaction except window visits or using technology for ZOOM or other similar "visits" with family and friends.

We are looking for caring individuals with time to go visit (at your own schedule) weekly or every other week to help area seniors feel connected to their community. It just takes one person to make a difference in one facility.

We provide free, comprehensive training as well as ongoing support to all Volunteer Ombudsmen. We also provide face masks, shields, handwipes and gloves to all our volunteers.
