The purpose of a volunteer is to provide a service to persons in need and respond to those basic needs of the residents in an atmosphere of respect for their dignity and independence. A volunteer’s goal is to assist residents to participate in formal and informal facility activities and to provide residents with the opportunity to have contact with people in addition to other residents and staff.
Volunteers should be sensitive to the needs of others and offer themselves to meet those needs, through friendly visits, resident outings, crafts, games, special events, music programs and entertainment. Be someone who cares with thoughtful understanding and dedicated service - be a volunteer Friend of Brookside!
