Our Junior Volunteers are young adults 13 to 18 years old. These boys and girls are very helpful in cheering up patients who are in need of a little more TLC. The students usually work in pairs, refreshing their drinking water and helping to deliver food trays. The patients always appreciate the efforts of the young volunteers to make them feel more comfortable in an unfamiliar environment.
They assist with feeding when needed, and play games if asked. They will take a patient for a walk in a wheel chair with permission from staff, and are always eager to run errands for basic needs when called on. These young people’s hours are from 4:00pm to 6:00pm one day a week.
