"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give."
-- Winston Churchill
At Proctor Place, volunteers make a difference in the lives of our residents every day. We believe that volunteerism is as beneficial for the volunteer as it is for our residents.
If you are ready to make a difference in the life of someone, while also improving your own life Proctor Place is the perfect place for you to volunteer. The opportunities are endless. Below are just a few examples of where we could use your help today. Please contact us today to let us know how you would like to help.
Resident Comfort and Support: In some situations, residents may no longer have family or friends in the area who are able to visit. These residents find a great deal of comfort in enjoying a nice conversation or some one on one time with our Comfort and Support volunteers. This volunteer opportunity may be the easiest and the most fulfilling.
B-I-N-G-O: No heavy lifting required here. Spend a couple of hours with us calling B-I-N-G-O. You will quickly learn how enjoyable a heated game of bingo can be! We provide everything needed so if you are interested in calling bingo we will let you know when our games are scheduled and it is as easy as showing up to call the numbers.
General Game and Activity Support: If you are ready to volunteer, but not sure what you want to do this may be an option to consider. Each month we have a wide variety of card games and other activities so there are endless opportunities to assist. All you need to do is contact us and we will review the upcoming activities so you can determine what is the best fit for you.
Event Support Specialist: Proctor Place holds numerous events throughout the year for our residents and outside guests. Event Support Specialists will have a variety of options to volunteer based on their comfort level. Opportunities usually include decorating and set up of for the event, general assitance serving food, monitoring and attending to residents' needs throughout the event and general clean up once the event ends.
Office Clerical Work or Special Project Assistance: Volunteers are needed occasionally to assist different departments within Proctor Place. This support includes a range of options from general filing to asstance with a special project.
