Guest Blog Post: Volunteering in Your Home Community

I am very thankful to have the opportunity to give back to the community that I have lived in for 33+ years. Volunteering at Appleridge Senior Living has been such a fulfilling experience. I assist the recreation department with a wide range of activities for residents. I have spent time serving refreshments during “tailgate parties” and social hours, participated in casino and trivia nights, visited with residents and their family members at the annual picnic, enjoyed live music by local musicians and traveled on field trips just to name a few.


My main goals are to form relationships with the residents and to assist the recreation department with events. I have gotten to know the Appleridge community well and have learned how I can make the best use of my time while I am visiting. Sometimes simply being a friend, a listening ear or serving a resident their favorite snack is appreciated the most! The environment of Appleridge is truly unique and there are many wonderful activities and opportunities offered. I am so thankful to be welcomed to each event, and I look forward to participating in many more to come!
