Volunteer

Gianna Homes is blessed by individuals who give their time and talent to help us serve our residents.

Experience the joy of volunteer work at Gianna Homes. Answering the call to serve others can not only brighten the life of those with memory issues, but this gift may also bring fulfillment to the volunteer. It is our vision that volunteers provide residents with loving care that respects residents’ dignity, uniqueness, and life, and in turn, volunteers will find spiritual and emotional satisfaction in their work. Volunteers receive training in dementia, communication strategies, and specific job skills. Volunteers may work as an individual, as a family, or as part of a school group. Time commitments are negotiable and any talent contributed will be met with the utmost appreciation. Start realizing the joy of spending time with our older generation!
