Volunteer at our Regency Retirement Village of Morristown
Make a difference in a senior’s day
From calling out bingo numbers for a fun game to assisting in other fun activities, we are always in need of volunteers at our Morristown assisted living community to serve in various capacities. Please contact us at 423.581.7075 to make a difference in the lives of our residents.
There are a slew of reasons why assisted living volunteering is beneficial, and we’d like to highlight a few for those who maybe be interested in helping out at Regency.
- Expand your horizons and learn something new! When you spend time with seniors, you have the unique opportunity to learn from the wealth of their experience. You can learn so much from the older generations, so while you’re helping take care of them, they are sharing knowledge and wisdom with you in the process.
- Make new friends! If you enjoy being around people and social connectedness, that’s a clear-cut benefit you will gain from volunteering at our Morristown assisted living community. You’ll form special bonds with the residents that will mean the world not only to them, but also to you.
- Gain career experience. Volunteering in this capacity can serve as a great way for teens and young adults to figure out if they’re interested in pursuing a career in senior care, nursing, or the like. It’s also a great way to develop many skills that are highly applicable in the workplace across many industries, from organization to fundraising skills to time management. Volunteer time also looks great on a resume, showing potential employers that you genuinely care about the community, and make time to give back.
- Improve your health. Not only does volunteering help provide a sense of purpose, but also volunteers can reap physical, mental, and emotional benefits as well. Volunteering provides opportunities to get active and build healthy social connections, which can be of benefit to the volunteer and the residents also.
