Volunteer with the Vital Living Program at East Side Neighborhood Services

Make a difference in the lives of older adults in our community, while engaging in a volunteer opportunity that highlights your talents and utilizes your experience. You’re just the person we’ve been looking for! 

Northeast Day Spot Friend Volunteer: Provide respite care support for people experiencing dementia and other chronic conditions while their caregivers receive a break. On Fridays from 9:30AM-1:30PM, you will socialize with participants, provide support during activities like art projects and games, and help with set up and clean up. No hands-on care required. You do not have to come every week.  

Music Maker Volunteer: Share your musical talents with people experiencing dementia. On Fridays from 12:15-1PM, you will play music for our group to enjoy. Bring your own instrument or use our keyboard. We also love sing alongs! Most music makers volunteer once every few months.  

Garden Volunteer: Help us plant, water and weed our community garden. Flexible days/times.  

Phone Call Friend Volunteer: Provide a listening ear and companionship to an older adult with weekly phone calls. Days/times are flexible.
