Give back to a senior community

April 10th, 2019

Duration: Ongoing
First Day : Apr 10, 2019



As a volunteer with LINC you will help low-income seniors sustain their physical and mental health while preventing social isolation and depression within this vulnerable population. Seniors living on fixed incomes are often forced to choose between paying for housing or nutritious foods, medication and participating in healthy activities. Health & Wellbeing Volunteers at LINC Cares address these issues by providing supportive programs that improve seniors’ quality of life and promote their ability to live independently.  

  

Volunteers coordinate the following activities:   

Exercise – leading stretching classes, walking groups, and other physically engaging programs   

Nutrition – demonstrating healthy recipes while providing educational workshops   

Community engagement – coordinating activities that include:    

Special holiday celebrations   

Arts & crafts   

Cognitive and socially active games (e.g., bingo and Wii)   

Computer labs – providing 1-to-1 instruction on basic computer skills and functions   

And more…  

  

Health & Wellbeing Volunteers are trained according to LINC Cares program models to coordinate their own assigned activities. Responsibilities include: outreach, preparation, setting up and cleaning program space, facilitating activities, ensuring the safety of participants, and communicating with property management and resident service staff.   

   

Learn new skills and have fun, all while improving the health of our community!
