Volunteering at Meadow Brook Medical Care Facility is a rewarding experience. Through the assistance of volunteers, we are able to effectively continue the high level of quality care and outstanding service for the community. Currently there are volunteer opportunities open in the following areas:

Do you have a talent or know someone who does? Can you sing, play an instrument or dance? Please think about sharing it with our residents. If you have a collection or enjoy making something our residents would like, we would love to have you share. Meadow Brook needs you!

  • Talent – Share your dramatic, musical (both vocal and instrumental) expertise, dance and magic to brighten the lives of our seniors.
  • Friendly Visitor – If you would enjoy visiting with a resident to read together, play cards, checkers, or just chat on a regular basis.
