Franciscan Adult Day Center Volunteers

Being a Friend to Seniors

Nestled in Manoa Valley, Franciscan Adult Day Center offers a comfortable and secure group setting for older adults who need some assistance and companionship during the day. Participants come together for a range of structured activities to enhance their quality of life, health and well-being.  These include Intergenerational learning experiences with preschool and high school students, arts and crafts, exercise and therapeutic activities, music, games, field trips and guest presentations.

Volunteers can help by participating in Reminisent groups, assisting with arts and crafts, playing music and singing, assist with games (bingo, cards), help with exercise classes and field trips, and read to clients.Volunteers are oriented and trained upon acceptance into the program.
