Thank you for your kind words, Marilyn. You are right, maintaining your volunteers' supported and appreciated is rewarded with their loyalty and dedication. Good work!

Marilynne this is a wonderful idea

As a volunteer for many years in different Aged Care Facilities what worked best for me was to have a monthly meeting so as to have input into the program.
Being able to brain storm and feeling a part of the team is vital. This is enough reward as I never expect gifts but a Thankyou goes a long way.
Many talents shared make it easier for the Lifestyle team. Some of your volunteers may have more knowledge with Dementia.
Thankyou for this wonderful site....
