Are you a school or university student looking for a way to make a difference in the world? To find a place where you can volunteer your time and talents? Are you a youth minister or teacher looking for a worthwhile service site for your group or class?
You've come to the right place! Youth are always welcome in our homes, for they bring joy and new life to the elderly like no one else can. As they serve, young people also discover the truth of Jesus words, "It is more blessed to give than to receive!" (Acts 20:35).
Young people are welcome individually or in groups, on a long-term or short-term basis, to entertain the Residents, animate a dance or Bingo party, or perform a variety of services.
"As advances in medicine and other factors lead to increased longevity, it is important to recognize the presence of growing numbers of older people as a blessing for society. Every generation can learn from the experience and wisdom of the generation that preceded it. Indeed the provision of care for the elderly should be considered not so much an act of generosity as the repayment of a debt of gratitude."
Pope Benedict XVI
