Volunteer Testimonials

Sarah, volunteer

“Volunteering with residents in nursing homes provides meaning and purpose in my life.  I feel like I'm making a difference in the lives of others. Many of the most meaningful interactions I’ve had in recent years are with the seniors I serve while volunteering!”
– Sarah, Arbor Memory Care Volunteer 




“When I'm volunteering it's hard to tell who is having more fun, the people there to help out or the people receiving the help. It is so much fun for everyone when we go to Highland Ridge that everyone, as soon as we leave, starts planning the next time we can go and what we can do.”
– Josephine, Highland Ridge Volunteer



Paul, Volunteer

"Volunteering with hospice is an opportunity to give back after all the care and support my mother received as a resident.. It is also a gift to me, many have led rich lives and simply enjoy a listening ear."

– Paul, Optage Hospice Volunteer





“Even the simple things like a smile and a look of recognition that I am a familiar face. That always touches my heart and makes me feel good.”
– Ann, Optage Companion Volunteer
 
Bailey the therapy dog

“Woof! Woof! Woof!” ("I love making the residents smile!")
– Bailey, Therapy Pet Volunteer
