Biography and Memory Boards

Organization types: Health and Diseases, Senior Citizens
Long term (6 months to a year)
Application Deadline: October 31, 2022
Posted on:

Volunteers will create memory boards for our residents that will hang outside their rooms. The boards are a reflection on the history of a resident and provide an opportunity for staff, visitors and volunteers to understand a bit about the person they are visiting. The volunteer should feel confident working with residents and families during information gathering interviews and have an ability to obtain information.

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
Seeing folks in long term care we sometimes forget that they had rich and diverse lives before their admission to long term care. It changes your perspective when you know about the history of the people you are communicating with, you end up concentrating on the person and not the physical look of that person.
How will the organization benefit?
We need volunteers to run our programs.
