*LEND A HAND: Provide Support for Seniors
What: Brighten seniors' days through arts & crafts, music, bingo, and sharing stories.
Alhambra Convalescent Home is a skilled-nursing facility providing long-term care for senior clients requiring 24-hour assistance.
Volunteer Project: L.A. Works volunteers provide companionship and support to the seniors of Alhambra Convalescent Home. Volunteers visit with seniors in the facility, working together to brighten up their days through art & craft activities, music, sharing stories, bingo and much more. Many of the senior residents do not get regular visitors, so the time that volunteers spend with them can make an important difference in their day.
Requirements: Many of the residents are of Chinese and Vietnamese decents and do not speak English. Volunteers who can speak mandarin or Vietnamese is a plus.
Minors: Any volunteer under the age of 18 will need to bring and have signed by a parent/guardian a Volunteer Agreement & Release for Minors. Volunteers under 13 years of age will also need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Federal Law prohibits volunteers under the age of 13 from registering on-line. To sign up a family member under the age of 13, sign yourself up and then email the project leader directly to let her/him know. Or, form a family volunteer team, include your children as team members, and then sign your team up for the project.
Accessibility: L.A. Works firmly believes that we strengthen the social fabric of our community by involving all in service. If you feel you need accommodations to participate in this project please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
