Heights Seniors

 

Adopt-a-bubby
Heights Seniors is a unique volunteer program, created to enhance the lives of local seniors. Many of us have parents or family who are seniors, living alone or in senior facilities, that would greatly benefit from an extra visit from someone who isn’t family. Family can not always visit as often as desired, and not always is there someone else to supplement those visits. And that’s where Heights Senior steps in. Heights Seniors matches local volunteers with local seniors for a weekly visit, bringing joy and a sense of caring to many. With your help, Heights Seniors soon hopes to match a volunteer with every senior!

Bringing Your Children
Bringing your children along on a visit is beneficial for both the seniors and the children. The seniors love the young company, and the relationship with the seniors has a positive effect on your family. Don't be concerned about the commotion that always accompanies kids. It can be a welcome change to the usually sedate home environment, and studies show that elderly people enjoy seeing and spending time with children.
