Sixty percent of the residents in long term care have no visitors. Volunteer "Friendly Visitors" go to facilities on a regular basis, from two to four hours weekly, greet and visit with residents, and help educate residents and families on residents' rights. These Friendly Visitors diminish the sense of isolation experienced by residents, especially those without family. They provide encouragement and assist the resident in achieving a sense of self-determination. Volunteer Friendly Visitors are special people who make a significant contribution. Through their efforts, they improve the quality of life for many seniors in our state. Make a difference in someone's life! Call us today!
