When planning your program for a 'Volunteers Luncheon' you may encourage some residents to participate actively by reading a poem. Here are a few poems suitable to the occasion.
Whether you are having a luncheon or a morning tea in honour of your volunteers, show them how appreciated they are by one and all at your facility.
December 5 is dedicated to volunteers. Plan and invite volunteers for the annual special event in appreciation of their hard work. Breakfast or lunch or a High Tea; whatever suits your schedule.
Organize residents and their relatives or residents and staff to read a poem for volunteers together.
Celebrate Volunteers Day with a lunch or High Tea in their honor. You can make it extra especial if you give them an inexpensive gift; preferably made by the residents.
Volunteers are a valuable resource in senior care. Acknowledging and appreciating their passion, skills and time generously donated is very important.
