Friendly Visiting volunteers are an unique group of volunteers who reach out to isolated seniors in long term care. Friendly visiting with residents in long term care contributes immeasurably to the health, quality of life and well -being of the resident. The time spent together and the personal interest demonstrated by the volunteer communicates caring and connections for those folks diagnosed with dementia or other related medical conditions. Friendly visiting can sometimes include other activities such as helping with baking, adult coloring, reading aloud, board games and social teas.
