Volunteers Needed For Seniors

| March 5, 2011 | 0 Comments

Anne Arundel County visitation programs offer three primary services to the aging community as well as hospitalized children and anyone who can benefit from contact from a caring member of the community.

• Pets on Wheels introduces friendly companion animals to those individuals who benefit from the remembrance and companionship of an old friend. Volunteers take pets on regularly weekly visits to isolated residents in one or more of the senior centers in the county or other visiting sites.

• Life Enrichment allows volunteers to establish a persistent and continual one-on-one relationship with one or more elderly individuals.

• Mom and Me volunteers bring the joy of children into the lives of the county’s aging residents and more.

An orientation session will be held at 6 p.m. March 9 at the Pascal Senior Activity Center, 125 Dorsey Road, Glen Burnie.

Volunteers are asked to not bring their children or pets to the orientation session which lasts about one hour. Additional sessions will be held every month except July and August. Call the office at 410-222-0738 to register or e-mail [email protected].
