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.
Volunteers are an essential resource at many care facilities. The impact on those receiving their services cannot always be measured, but is often profound.
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.
