Heidehof relies significantly on volunteers to enhance the quality of life for our residents in our complex. Volunteers supplement and extend the work of the staff with their valued contributions of time and skill. Volunteers perform a wide range of services from a simple friendly visit to assisting with programs.

Heidehof continually looks for new volunteers to share their talents with us. No time is too great or too small to volunteer. Volunteers are needed to work with residents directly or behind the scenes. If you are interested please call and we will find something you can do within your comfort level.
