Volunteer at our Chattanooga Assisted Living Facility
Make a difference in a senior’s life
We are always looking for smiling faces to make a difference in the lives of our residents. From individual to group participation, there are a number of volunteer opportunities. Please contact us at 706.866.4443 to brighten the day and make a difference in our residents’ lives.
There are so many reasons why assisted living volunteering is beneficial, and we’d like to point out a few for those who maybe be interested in helping out at The Rosewood at Fort Oglethorpe.
- Broaden your horizons, and learn something new! When you spend time with our senior residents, you get the unique opportunity to learn from their vast life experience. You can learn so much from the older generations! So while you’re helping take care of them, they can share knowledge and wisdom with you in the process.
- Gain career experience, and enhance your your resume. Volunteering in this way can serve as a great way for teens and young adults to decide if they want to pursue a career in senior care, nursing, or a similar field. It’s also a great way to develop skills that are highly applicable in the workplace across many industries, from organization to fundraising skills to time management. Volunteer time also looks great on a resume, showing potential employers that you genuinely care about the community, and make time to give back.
- Make some amazing friends! If you enjoy being around people, that’s a clear-cut benefit you will gain from volunteering at our Chattanooga assisted living community. Form special bonds with the residents that will mean the world not only to them, but also to you.
- Improve your own health. Not only does volunteering provide a sense of purpose, but also volunteers can actually reap physical, mental, and emotional benefits as well. Volunteering provides opportunities to get active while building healthy social connections, which can be of benefit to the volunteer as well as the residents at Rosewood.
