A group of volunteers spent the day with seniors from Mountain Lakes

Volunteers help residents of Mountain Lake

Nelson families took the time to visit Mountain Lake Seniors Community to share some of their time and company.

The residents at Mountain Lake Seniors Community had some welcome visitors on Saturday, November 2.

A group of local individuals and families teamed up to share some of their time and company with the folks who live at the senior home.

“Volunteers are an integral part of the care team at Mountain Lake providing invaluable services to our residents and tenants,” said Randine Arnesen, volunteer coordinator.

The volunteers brought with them handmade artwork, as well as flowers that were donated by Save-On-Foods in Nelson.

“Volunteers assist with many life enrichment programs at Mountain Lake such as bingo and other games, teas, birthdays and other celebrations, outings, music programs, arts and crafts,” Arnesen said.

“Visiting with residents on a one-to-one basis for a cup of tea, a walk in the hall or a game of cards is also a much needed service that volunteers contribute.”

Mountain Lake Seniors Community, located in upper Fairview, is home to 130 Nelson and area elders. It is a campus of care with 90 complex-care rooms and 40 one-bedroom, assisted-living suites.

Anyone interested in volunteering  can contact the coordinator at 250-352-2600, extension 115.
