Volunteering is such a rewarding experience!
At The Classic at Hillcrest Greens in the Eau Claire, Altoona, and Chippewa Falls area, we appreciate the volunteers who come to visit and socialize with our Memory Care residents. Some of our volunteers help with our arts and crafts programs, some entertain, and others simply spend a few hours of their time visiting with our dementia and memory care residents and engaging them in lively conversations.
Volunteers not only provide additional care and attention, they provide the “extras” that enhance the quality care given by our staff. Although all residents living at our Memory Care facilities are encouraged to remain as active and independent as possible, we understand illness or disability sometimes prevents residents from meeting this goal. Volunteers may perform simple tasks or visit with someone in dementia care who might need companionship. As simple as the task may be, volunteers play a vital role in our community.
