Estate Planning

Aftenro has remained open for the last 100 years in large part due to our benefactors and their generous donations that help us continue to provide amazing care. Chat with our business office to get an idea what estate planning with Aftenro in mind might look like for you.

Volunteer: How To Donate Your Time

Being a not-for-profit organization means we rely heavily on the support of our community. This support can look very different for each person; it could be anything from local clergy offering Sunday worship to being included in estate planning. Chances are if you have time, talent, or a passion for something then there’s a way we can utilize it to enrich the lives of our residents.

The following are just some of the areas we have for opportunities to volunteer:

  • Activities – visiting with residents / working in the gift shop / assisting with parties or group activities / chaperoning outings / decorating bulletin boards
  • Nursing – helping to transport residents to and from meals / facilitating daily water and snack pass
  • Grounds – gardening / weeding / indoor arrangements
  • Misc. – decorating bulletin boards / wheelchair and walker cleaning / dining assist / handing out mail / offering live music

Whether you’re interested in a one time volunteer or would like to become one of our regulars, we would love to hear from you!

So what’s the process?

Get in touch! You can either fill out the short form below, call, email, or just stop by. Let us know that you might be interested in volunteering so that we can get you where you want to be.

Once you’re contacted, we’ll set up your volunteer orientation. At that time we’ll have you fill out a Background Study, give you the grand tour of Aftenro and then dive into ways you’ll be able to volunteer whether that’s according to your available time or interests.
