Friendly Visitor Program
Loneliness is an all too familiar feeling for many seniors in Ocala. Those who see no one from month and month can suffer from depression, physical illness, and mental illness.
All it takes is an hour a week of your time to share stories, photos, and smiles with a new friend!
Senior/Student Lunch Program
Many seniors in Ocala have grandchildren who live far away in other states. Other seniors would enjoy the challenge of learning about the world through a young person’s eyes. College students would benefit from learning from those who are in experience and have lived full lives.
The senior/student lunch program would bring these two worlds together and broaden the growth of each.
Intergenerational lunches will encourage conversation between seniors and college students. The activity is conducted by student volunteers.
Entertainment for Assisted Living and Nursing Homes
We will provide monthly entertainment to nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
We are seeking volunteers who love to amuse and brighten some seniors live.
Home Repairs for Needy Seniors
Many older adults in Ocala wish to remain at home, but these homes require changes and repairs. More than that, home repairs present a physical and financial challenge to many older residents. Thus, the purpose of the Senior Resource Foundation of Ocala is to improve and revive individual residences with your help.
In particular, seniors need to feel confident and trusting of the workman doing their repairs. Therefore, your expertise and experience will be very helpful to the Ocala senior population.
So, if you can spare several hours a month of goodwill and participation to our organization, we would welcome your help.
