Working with the Elderly

  • Intergenerational Learning.

 

Poem by a volunteer reflecting on time with elderly in 2010:
"Elderly Affairs at PBHA helped me pave the way
 
quirky, humanity, love,
 
and impacted lives,
 
heart-lifting live-changing experience,
 
helped me to realize world is good,
 
has brought smiling faces,
 
the residents are past, present and future together.
 
They appreciate us."

Working with the Elderly is a 2-hour training that prepare participants with the knowledge and approaches to work with elderly people. This training is highly recommended for all new volunteers with Elderly programs.
