Volunteering in senior care is a rewarding and important undertaking. On Site’s volunteers provide much needed support to frail elders who are struggling with pain, loneliness, chronic disease, multiple losses and major life changes. By volunteering 1-2 hours per week, you can have a huge impact on the life of a senior!
Spiritual Support / Prayer Team
One of the primary methods of caring for the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of patients is through prayer. Prayer encourages those facing illness and crisis, provides spiritual support and strength, and helps medical providers in their work. On Site’s prayer and spiritual support team welcomes volunteers from the community and is available to anyone who has prayer requests or who needs encouragement.
The Prayer Team meets weekly. Please contact us for the current schedule.
Social and Spiritual Support Visits
Quality time in conversation is rare for many seniors and isolation is common. The emotional and spiritual support offered by volunteers is priceless. They are the caring touch of Christ in the lives of these lonely and often forgotten people.
Visiting seniors may include conversation, companionship, prayer, reading or other activities such as playing games, looking at photographs, and listening to the person review their life.
