Brookdale

Brookdale Assisted Living

Leader: Victoria Leffers (Victoria.Leffers@ctx.edu)

Volunteering with senior citizens is a great way to get life advice and have fun with some super fun people! Many people at Brookdale do not receive a lot of visits from family, so our game night is the bright spot of their week. Join us to talk and play games with our local area senior citizens. We usually play card games, board games, dominoes, or even put together puzzles. Weekly

Due to Covid-19, all our service opportunities with Brookdale will be virtual this fall. We have developed a Read to a Resident Program to connect with our friends at Brookdale.
