Area Senior Centers Thank Volunteers

Care Connection for Aging Services is honoring volunteers in 23 locations in April as part of ‘National Volunteer Week,’ from April 23 to 29.

Care Connection has almost 2000 volunteers that are essential to the operation of the senior centers in 13 counties.

According to a press release from Care Connection, volunteer roles in senior centers range from receptionist and dining room host, to food server and dishwasher. Volunteers deliver meals to the homebound and drive homebound seniors to their medical visits. They also help out with recreational events and teach fitness classes.

Volunteers work as educators in the statewide Missouri SMP (Senior Medicare Patrol) and as options-counselors in Medicare Part D enrollment. The volunteers also help to make the long-term care ombudsman program and tax assistance program possible.

“You name a volunteer’s skill set, and we can name a role for that person,” said Diana Hoemann, Executive Director for Care Connection.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, volunteers age 65 and older have the highest average of annual hours of service – 94 hours – of any age group.

If you want to find a volunteer role in one of 23 senior centers, call 1-800-748-7826 or visit goaging.org.

Some of the area senior centers include Sedalia, Warrensburg, Windsor, Marshall, Clinton, Warsaw, Cole Camp, and Holden.
