I’m Passionate about Seniors

Senior Health Care and Housing

Companionship  Volunteers

For our residents, enjoying a conversation with a friendly visitor, sharing stories and memories, and laughing every day contributes to fulfillment of the spirit.

Pastoral and Spiritual Care

Pastoral care is essential to life fulfillment for may of our residents. Ordained members of the faith community are invited to share their gifts with residents representing many faiths and denominations.  Spiritual nourishment is essential in providing care and comfort to our residents. Spiritual care means many things- providing a calming presence, a listening ear, a source of hope and an opportunity to reminisce.

Arts and Crafts Volunteers

Arts and crafts activities provide stimulation and encourage creativity among our residents. Volunteers can share their time and talents with residents who enjoy these activities.

Group Activity/ Performance Volunteers

Group activities such as bingo, trivia, games and gardening add joy to our residents’ days.  Music, dance and other performances also contribute to comfort and well-being.  We invite you to share your interests and talents with our community.

Memory Care Volunteers

At LSS, our goal is to make each day fulfilling for our residents.  When Alzheimer’s and dementia change the way we interact with others, finding fulfillment can be challenging.  Memory care volunteers are needed to provide the individualized services that stimulate and comfort our residents with memory impairments.

Concierge Volunteers

Small acts of kindness contribute to the comfort of our residents.  A glass of water, a magazine or book to read, an extra pillow, a reassuring smile, an answered question, or help with something that is just out of reach.  Volunteers can provide the assistance that our residents need.

Volunteers complete an application and orientation process.  Volunteers of all ages can participate in various activities.
