Volunteers at Eureka Apostolic Christian Home play a vital role in helping us provide the highest level of quality care.
Whether you are simply looking for an opportunity to give back, are a student or organization looking for community service hours, are retired and have some free time to share, have a family member here and would like to be more involved in their lives, or whatever your reason, please consider volunteering in one of the many ways listed below.
Some of the ways our volunteers enhance the residents' living experience are:
Visiting with residents; reading or writing letters
Taking residents out for walks, shopping trips, meals and coffee
Assist with activities, parties and family nights
Leading games or providing entertainment
Painting, maintaining flower beds, sewing
At-home volunteering such as baking, hosting luncheons, mending, typing
Evening and weekend volunteering in most of the above areas
If you have a special talent you would like to share, we would love to hear from you. Our residents enjoy a wide variety of activities, whether it be cooking, playing an instrument, singing, telling stories, or making crafts, to list a few.
Please consider sharing some of your time with our family - not only will you enhance the lives of those living at our home, but you will reap the benefits of joyful giving and sharing.
I volunteer because doing and seeing even small acts of kindness toward an elderly, failing human being thrills my soul. Also, seeing those in their twilight years bravely trusting in His providence is very moving, and inspires me deeply.”
There is a very direct relationship between happiness received and happiness given, to those around us.
When you volunteer you find a warm and caring feeling of helping, healing and living, that I don’t find in most places.” ~J.K.
Volunteering is a win, win situation, you give smiles and you get smiles back.
Volunteering has been an enriching experience for me and has taught me to see through 'different eyes'. In getting to know the residents personally, I’ve been able to get a glimpse into the life they lived, before age took its toll on their bodies. I’ve learned that they still think, feel emotion & have concerns & desires.- just as we all do. Each one is special and very dear!
