Volunteers Add Value to Assisted Living Community in Riverview
At The Bridges Assisted Living community in Riverview, we have numerous volunteers with varying backgrounds who bring their talent, enthusiasm and heart to their volunteer jobs. During Volunteer Appreciation Week, The Bridges held a special brunch to celebrate and honor our special volunteers.
Music fills the room when musicians, such as Julian and Noah, play the piano several times a month. When PAWS for Friendship arrives, residents are eager to pet and hold the therapy dogs. For volunteers, like Terri and Karen, who work in the activities department, they are kept busy with Wii bowling, chair yoga, bingo, crafts, and special events. Volunteers from various churches give their time to pray with residents either individually or in a group.
There is no shortage of opportunities for volunteer involvement. Our residents enjoy, appreciate and look forward to spending time with our special volunteers.
Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart. – Elizabeth Andrew
