Volunteers Enrich Lives
Many adult medical day centers welcome volunteers to work with participants at the center. People of all ages, including children, can volunteer. Schools and community groups may also entertain participants at adult day centers. Volunteers may teach a class, share their musical talents, provide a talk about a recent trip abroad, help with arts and crafts, serve lunch or serve as an escort on a community trip. Ask the day center you are considering if they accept volunteers and in which ways the volunteers participate in the center's community.
