The Julia Temple Healthcare Center is looking for some big-hearted people to become 1:1 volunteers. Their building is a home for people coping with varying degrees of dementia- many of them have no family or friends to come visit, so our 1:1 volunteers fill that void. The 1:1 volunteers do a variety of things: conversation, reading, playing cards, helping with small-group activities, manicures, or simply sitting and holding someone’s hand. The 1:1 volunteers commit to at least 1 hour per week, and we are happy to work with your schedule. They also provide training materials to make you as comfortable as possible as you begin in this new role. You can also complete all facets of the application/orientation/training process online, and be volunteering in the building within 1 week!
Julia Temple Healthcare Center is a place where residents and their families feel loved, informed, and comfortable. By creating an empowered, professional work environment, our employees are free to meet our customers’ needs every day.
The Julia Temple Healthcare Center experience renews our residents’ health and hopes for the future by providing a surprising level of attention and service.
We are a long-term care facility for those struggling with dementia as well as a short-term rehabilitation residence for those requiring therapy to return home.
