Agapé Senior Volunteer Opportunities

Helping Others

There comes a time in our lives when we want to do something special; to make a difference in the quality of life for others and for ourselves.
Opportunities for volunteering at Agapé are endless. You will be working with our life enrichment specialists to make a difference in the everyday lives of Agapé Senior residents, Agapé Hospice patients, and their families.
Our "Life Enrichment Program" improves the lives of all our patients and residents by stimulating them everyday with activities, socialization, exercise and interaction.
Through Agapé Hospice, we provide compassionate, individualized end of life care for our patients and their loved ones.

Who Can Volunteer?

Agapé Senior maintains a qualified volunteer staff to enhance our company's ongoing pursuit of excellence. Life Enrichment volunteers offer an extra dimension of care and service to patients and their families.
Our "Life Enrichment Volunteer Program" is open to anyone. We welcome caring people who have some time to share with others, a desire to give of themselves, a sense of responsibility and a willingness to be flexible and learn new skills.
Junior volunteers are eligible to participate in the volunteer program.
Junior Volunteers have an opportunity to learn about healthcare related careers and earn community service credit, while providing the same caring services. Please visit your school guidance counselor or academic adviser for credit information.
