What is it that lifts your spirit? For some it’s exercising, a home cooked meal, or a good book. For the residents at Regency Retirement Home, it’s participating in game night and socializing with new people.
When you volunteer for a game night at Regency Retirement Home, you’re investing your time in lifting the spirits of senior citizens. The residents look forward to volunteers coming to play Bingo, board games and cards with them and their neighbors.
But don’t worry! If you’re not very good at Bingo, rummy, or other games, that’s OK! Alexa Catherman, Hands on Charlotte volunteer, explains her experience volunteering at Game Night as overwhelmingly positive, despite her failings when it comes to her Bingo game.
“My table definitely scored the most bingos, even if I wasn’t able to contribute any wins of my own. The folks at my table kept the game interesting by making little jokes, ragging on each other, and just adding a little more drama to the game (let’s be honest, Bingo is not exactly an edge-of-your-seat kind of game). I enjoyed myself, despite my incompetence; it was nice to help make the residents smile.”
As a Game Night volunteer, you simply get to play games and interact with the excited residents at Regency. It’s a no-pressure, laid back environment where you leave with a full heart and a positive attitude. You have the opportunity to build relationships with the gracious residents who are just overwhelmingly happy you’re there!
