Join our active volunteer corps of devoted men, women and teens who are committed to using their time and talents to enhance the quality of life for The Weils residents. Each volunteer works with staff in special programs, activities, events and projects.
Whether you give an hour a week or an hour a month, you will be rewarded in many ways through your relationship with residents, staff and other volunteers.
You can volunteer by yourself, with a friend or in a group. Groups can volunteer year-round or for a specific project such as a holiday program.
Although volunteering has its own rewards-special moments with residents and new friends-we also publicly recognize our volunteers for their devoted service twice a year. We salute our volunteers during National Volunteer Week and at our annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon.
Volunteer Opportunities include:
Concierge — Greet visitors and provide people with information at the Rehab Pavilion reception desk.
Men’s Club Discussion Leader — Facilitate discussions of current events and timely topics.
Activities Assistant — Play games (including canasta, bridge, scrabble, etc.), assist with art projects and help with cooking programs.
Sabbath Leaders – Help residents welcome the Sabbath by leading Friday evening services.
Pet Therapy – Both you and your certified-therapy pet can bring smiles to others by socializing with residents.
Bingo Caller – Call Bingo for our residents, Bingo is one of our most well-attended activities and is lots of fun.
