Today’s assisted living communities rely on volunteers to help create meaningful activities and programs for their residents. At Silver Palms, we value our volunteers and welcome them to help organize outings and activities, or just spend an afternoon hanging out with our residents. Whether you have a passion that you would like to bring to Silver Palms or a skill that can be used to benefit the lives of our seniors, we would love to hear from you.

If you have been considering becoming a volunteer, here are some benefits to keep in mind:

    Make new friends

    Many volunteers develop excellent, long-term relationships with seniors — seeing them as true friends, rather than volunteering obligations. These friendships are fulfilling for both volunteers and seniors.

    Expand your horizons

    Seniors have a lifetime of experience and wisdom to share with you. By spending time with older adults, you will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and a fresh perspective on aging that can enrich your life.

    Advance your career

    Volunteering in a senior living community can provide you with valuable experience for any career. Organizing, coordinating, and assisting with fundraising, daily activities, special events, and other details can help to strengthen your skills for the workplace.

    Improves your health

    Lending a helping hand is good for you. Studies show volunteering is good for both our bodies and our minds. Among other benefits, volunteering can reduce stress, improve mood, help prevent loneliness, and lower the risk of developing high blood pressure. So, for older adults with physical ailments, volunteering can actually make you feel better.
