Volunteers enhance the lives of Grandvue’s Elders by helping facilitate weekly outings, Bingo games, group activities and special events. They also assist with one-to-one activities such as nail care, reading and letter writing. Many volunteers fill the role of a special friend for an Elder and provide comfort and companionship by sharing stories and memories.
Volunteering can provide an outlet for community members to connect with others, make new friends and contacts and increase social and relationship skills. Volunteering is good for the mind and body, as it can increase self-confidence, self-esteem and life satisfaction.
There is a natural sense of accomplishment that accompanies helping others, and volunteering is also a fun and easy way to explore new interests. Volunteers often find a renewed creativity, motivation and vision that carries over into other aspects of their lives.
