Diverse volunteer opportunities provide unique experiences with a common goal: the dedication to positively impact lives at Providence Rest.

Here are a few ways our volunteers donate their time and talents to Providence Rest:

Adopt-A-Resident

Some residents are looking for new ways to socialize. Maybe they don't have any children or grandchildren, or maybe their family doesn't live nearby. If you would like to "adopt" a resident, you can do so by dedicating a few hours a week to visit, walk with them, read books, tell stories, or provide some company.

Recreation Partners

Many of our residents enjoy outside recreational activities, such as walking in the park, going to a show, browsing through a museum or going out to eat in a restaurant. We need volunteers to accompany them along with the staff. If you enjoy doing these things, you would make a great volunteer!
