Volunteer appreciation day was held recently at The Oaks at Limestone, where a special luncheon was held and each volunteer was individually recognized for their contributions.
"We appreciate our volunteers all year long, but today we tried to really show them how much their efforts truly mean to us," said Jonathan Cannon the activities director and organizer of the event. "Our patients adore them and really enjoy seeing them visit. We have some amazing people who help us out through the provision of all kinds of different services. Volunteers do everything from bringing in and arranging flowers to helping with activities and reading out loud to the residents."
The Oaks is always open to new friendly faces and anyone interested in volunteering should come in and apply. The process includes a background check and drug testing as required in any care center for the safety of the patients and employees.
"The Oaks at Limestone is a wonderful place to spend some free time and everyone finds it very rewarding. It is a beautiful, clean campus with great employees and a caring ambiance," said Cannon.
