Our 80-plus employees and more than 400 volunteers are, of course, absolutely key to our success! Employees range in age from teens to octogenarians, and serve as nurses, counselors, cooks, activity leaders, van drivers, cleaners, and office support.
We love volunteers! They add extra attention and entertainment talent that increases program quality. We have visiting babies and activity assistants in their 80s. Volunteers might give travel talks, play the piano, lead walking groups, or set tables.
Our board, our staff, and our volunteers make up our community of helpers.
