What if you were a bit chilled and needed a blanket or shawl tucked around you? What if you needed help cutting up your food or maybe feeding yourself? What if you wanted some water or ice? What if you needed your chin wiped? What if you needed someone to take you to the church services or various events? What if you would like someone to just sit and talk with you? What if you would like to have the Bible read to you? What if you wished for someone to just hold your hand, give you a hug or perhaps pray with or for you?
Some of these things take only a few seconds – or up to two hours.
Might you be able to share that time helping those who can’t help themselves?
Volunteering at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home is almost as rewarding to you as to the residents. It gives you the feeling of being needed and being a friend who cares often just stepping into a room to say hello and lets them know that you recognize their existence.
Consider becoming a Sunrise Manor volunteer. Contact Kathy Cooper at 358-3103 for an appointment and consultation. After all, what if it was you who needed those things?
