Ever wonder what happens during a "typical" Senior Connections visit? Well the fact is that there is no typical Senior Connections visit, but let us share one story of one visit.
During a recent holiday visit, Ellen Butkus, Senior Connections volunteer, made her visit extra special with a festive manicure with red and green nail polishes, just as her senior friend requested. They had a great time reminiscing about past holidays and listening to some of their favorite Christmas music. We think Ellen did a pretty fantastic manicure job!
Senior Connections provides one-on-one meaningful relationships between socially isolated seniors and caring volunteers. The friendship and camaraderie that is formed are always special, but especially so around the holidays.
