Volunteer at Age Well Arrowhead

Mission

Provide meaningful and fulfilling volunteer experiences

Make an Impact

The smallest gesture can make a big difference in someone else’s life.

Develop New Skills

Learn to work one on one with the aging community.

Reward

Volunteering can be one of the most fulfilling experiences.

Become a part of the family.

Volunteers that serve with Age Well Arrowhead, will learn that even the smallest gesture can make a big difference in someone else’s life. Tasks may include grocery shopping and delivery, transportation, dusting a ceiling fan, shoveling snow, or other light housekeeping.  We even have volunteers that help run the organization from the inside!

It is easy to get lost in my own life. Problems, both global and personal can feel unmanageable. Once a week I have the privilege of helping my fellow citizens. This humbling service allows me to be active in creating a kinder world- no matter how small the gesture, while forcing me to take note of my blessings. Age Well Arrowhead is good for the community and it good for my soul.

Volunteering with Age Well Arrowhead helps me appreciate the value of simple gestures. “Groceries to Go” clients are incredibly grateful for the service and often break into smiles when they open the door, eager to chat or share a few words. Supporting seniors in ways that allow them to stay in their homes as long as possible preserves their dignity and makes volunteering a very rewarding experience.

Age Well has taught me patience. It has also taught be about the interconnectedness you can have and make with the people we shop for. Age Well has taught me that community comes in all forms.

We promise a meaningful volunteer experience.

At the end of the day, there are few things as rewarding as the genuine gratitude shown by the older adults we care for and the thrill of knowing you positively impacted their lives and ability to age in place.
