You're just in time for June!

Visit with an elder through the Friendship & Flowers program. We visit folks who live independently and in assisted living facilities. Each elder has something unique to share and offer and is looking forward to saying hey!

 

 

How can you participate in Friendship and Flowers?

This opportunity is offered on the second Saturday of each month. You can sign up for just one time- or as many months as you would like! New volunteers must complete a CORI (a background check) which can be found at the bottom of the page.

What will the day look like?

You will first stop by our Jamaica Plain office (3305 Washington Street). Please plan to spend 1-2 hours volunteering.

11:30-12:30 pm Orientation and basic training for new volunteers including opportunity to create your own bouquet of flowers! Returning volunteers, we encourage you to attend and share your experiences!

12:30-1:00 pm Travel to elder's home

1:00-3:00 pm Visit with elder(s). You do not have to stay the full 2 hours, but please end the visit by 3:00 pm

All homes are MBTA accessible and most offer parking for volunteers. If you are visiting at an assisted living facility, the staff will know that you are coming and will help you locate your elder when you arrive at the facility. At the assisted living facilities, you can visit in your choice of indoor and outdoor community spaces at their residence. Feel free to bring a deck of cards or your favorite magazine to share during the visit. Questions about this form or volunteering for Friendship & Flowers?
