National Association of Long-Term Care Volunteers
Recruiting & training volunteers to serve in long-term care communities
Becoming a companion volunteer is one of the most rewarding experiences you will have. You will witness firsthand the impact you make on someone’s sense of self-worth and dignity. This site is designed just for you.
The first step is to complete this training and receive the Certificate of Completion that you can present to the person managing volunteers.
The certificate will communicate your commitment to excellence.
Once you’ve completed the initial volunteer training and have some experience volunteering in a long-term care setting, check out these great opportunities to add to your volunteer skills and expertise!
There are some 15,000 long-term care communities in the United States. Living in every one of them are people who have no one to visit them. Research shows that they are twice as likely to die in the same period as those people who do get regular visits. Please, invite your friends, coworkers, neighbors, family members to join you in this wonderful outreach.
