We pride ourselves on the longevity of care providers who really get to know and bond with our resident as an extension of your family.  One may think Alzheimer's disease is the end of the story, in reality it is just the beginning of a new chapter that can be filled with great meaning and purpose. Making one resident smile can change the world, maybe not the entire world, but their world. We are currently looking for individuals who are compassionate and strive to make others smile. We are in search of people who are artists, musicians, and interested in sitting and chatting with our residents. The many crafts we offer, including bead making, tie blanket making, & artwork inspired by famous artists, encourage our residents to share their talents. One may never expect it, but even in our most reserved residents, an artist dwells!  What we expect from our volunteers is a compassionate nature, willing to take part in our daily activities such as exercise, bingo, reading groups, crafts, cognitive exercises, and coffee socials. Feel free to contact us via e-mail or phone with any questions or comments.  dmolinelli@theclareestate.come or (609)298-9960 ask for the activities department.
