The Gift of Volunteering

JGS Lifecare could not do all that it does without a host of generous, friendly, and positive volunteers. At the heart of what we do, volunteers participate in a variety of meaningful activities that help make our residents feel happy and at ease. Volunteers help in many areas, with many involved with entertainment and events and our gift shop, visiting with residents, and so much more. The rewards of volunteerism are many, but none is as great as the knowledge that you can help our seniors live with the quality, dignity and respect that they so richly deserve.

What Can You Do?
