Shot of a resident and a nurse outside in the retirement home gardenBehind the scenes at Webster at Rye is a group of dedicated individuals who quietly and unselfishly give of themselves and their time. These volunteers comprise a key component in attaining the high quality of life that our residents and families have come to expect and appreciate.

There are many ways to volunteer at Webster at Rye. Some volunteers might choose to share their hobbies, talents and special interests, while others provide important emotional support to an individual by simply holding a hand or lending an ear. Volunteers can have regularly scheduled assignments or can come in to help with a specific event, such as a holiday party or a shopping trip to the mall. Volunteer work can be done at almost any time – days, evenings, weekends, in short stints, or over longer periods of time. Each volunteer brings a special gift to his or her volunteer work. Sometimes a smile, touch or laughter together can be the most meaningful contribution a volunteer can make.

There are also opportunities for junior volunteers between the ages of 14-18. These special volunteers assist in Webster at Rye’s intergenerational programs. They may help residents hand out treats to children at Halloween, assist in a weekly bowling game or teach someone how to use the computer.

Regardless of what you do or how often you do it, you can expect volunteering to be a fun way to spend your time with the added benefit of helping others.
