Volunteer at RiverSpring Living.

The Volunteer Services Department is excited to invite volunteers back to our campus.

Are you interested in learning about healthcare? Are you a student interested in a specific field and looking for your direction? Are you retired and looking to utilize your skills to help others? Whatever your reason, we would be happy to talk with you to find the right volunteer opportunity.

We are seeking dedicated members of our community (18+ years of age and fully vaccinated) who are interested in making a difference in the lives of older adults. Give us a call at (718) 581-1404 or fill out the form below to learn more.

Volunteer opportunities

We encourage anyone who is interested in making a difference, exploring a career path, or looking for real-life experience in a specific field to call our Volunteer Services Department to find out more about our diverse range of opportunities.

Here are a few examples of how you can help:

  • Assisting with our rehabilitation services department
  • Leading our residents through our famous Derfner Judaica Art Collection + Museum
  • Religious services support and pastoral visits
  • Accounting assistance
  • IT support
  • Library services
  • Marketing and communications support
  • Assisting with nursing staff on our nursing home floor
  • Engaging our residents in conversation by leading discussion groups
  • Providing entertainment to our residents
  • Keeping our residents active with recreational activities like music, art, and aerobics
  • Helping in one of our many departments providing clerical support such as answering telephones, inputting data, filing, typing, and taking messages

Still not sure how you can help? Spending the day with a resident is a welcomed volunteer activity. A simple visit can make all the difference in the day of an older adult. This requires no special skill or ability—just a readiness to listen and learn.

If you are interested in bringing joy to the lives of older people in your community, our Volunteer Services department is happy to meet with you to discuss opportunities based on your interests, skills, availability, and our needs. We look forward to meeting you!
