What is Adopt-A-Grandparent?

Right now we have two different volunteer opportunities available! Pick which one is right for you!

Cove Point Nursing Home: 

Every Sunday we carpool to Cove Point nursing home to take 1-2 hours and sing to or visit with the residents as a group! If you're interested in driving yourself or carpooling with us, make sure to call or text someone under the Program Directors section of our website! They will let you know about when and where the carpool will be meeting and answer any other questions that you have!

 

One on One Visits:

These are a more personal way of visiting with or "adopting" a grandparent of your own! This is a larger commitment, and as such we want to make sure that all of our volunteers are trained and prepared for it! If you're interested in this service opportunity contact Matthew under the Program Directors section of our website! He will get you started from there and answer any other questions that you have!

Experiences

I had such a fun time visiting  with one specific resident. She had so much energy and excitement as we talked, and it was so contagious! Our visit was so positive and impactful for her, and I'm so glad I took the time to volunteer! I felt the Spirit and came much closer to the Savior.
