Pass It On

Have you had a kindness shown?

Pass it on;

‘Twas not given for thee alone,

Pass it on;

Let it travel down the years,

Let it wipe another’s tears, 

‘Til in Heaven the deed appears—

Pass it on.

                                 —Henry Burton

Lawrence Hall & Rehabilitation has both  morning and afternoon activities seven days a week,  so  there  are  lots  of  opportunities  for  you  to  volunteer.  If  there  is  a  particular activity  you  would  like  to  introduce  to  the  residents  or  you  have  a  special  talent  that you would like to share, our Activity Department would be happy to work with you.

Lawrence  Memorial  Hospital  has  other  volunteer  opportunities.  Lawrence  Memorial Hospital provides a swing bed program designed for extended patient care beyond the hospital  stay.  Because  of  the  increased  isolation  of  being  away  from  their  usual environments,  these  patients  have  a  greater  need  for  visitation.  Swing Bed  volunteers may provide friendly visiting, read to patients, play games, etc. This program does not require a fixed schedule.

Volunteers are needed to provide ice and water to patient rooms. Similarly, it is of great value  to  have  volunteers  deliver  magazines,  books,  and  coffee  to  those  staying  with patients. Hospital assistance volunteers are assigned to a schedule.

From  time  to  time,  the  Liaison  will  be  called  upon  to  set  up  volunteers  for  assistance performing clerical duties, such as copying, labeling and stuffing envelopes, answering phones,  filing  charts,  etc.  These  activities  may  be  scheduled  to  fit  the  times  that  the volunteer is available.

In  addition,  Lawrence  Healthcare  participates  in  many  community  events  in  order  to enhance the images of the facilities, such as health fairs, community exhibits, as well as fundraising efforts and we would also love to have volunteers.

For  more  information  on  volunteering  for  these  activities,  contact  Andrea  Jones  at (870) 886-1265.
