You Can Make a Difference

At Hebrew SeniorLife we are committed to transforming the experience of aging for the seniors we serve. We depend on the generous donation of time from our volunteers who make it possible to offer so many life-enhancing programs. In turn, our volunteers find it gratifying to know that they make a real difference in an older adult’s life with their service.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have a safe and limited number of opportunities for volunteers to work directly with long-term chronic care patients. Volunteers play a critical role in patient transport, social engagement, and in-person and video visits with families. All volunteers must follow the same COVID-19 testing, personal protective equipment, and infection control protocols as staff. If you’re interested in exploring opportunities please contact Lynda Bussgang at 781-234-9217.

Donate to our COVID-19 Response Fund

This health care crisis is putting our most vulnerable seniors at risk. Gifts to Hebrew SeniorLife’s COVID-19 Senior Response Fund will provide funding to purchase personal protective equipment, increase staffing, do food deliveries, and expand technology to help patients and residents ward off social isolation. Please give today to meet an urgent and growing need.
