The Abramson Center for Jewish Life is a nonprofit provider of services to seniors that includes nursing care, assisted living, hospice, adult day care, counseling for caregivers, and aging research. Volunteer opportunities include but are not limited to, one on one friendly visits, reading to a resident, working with residents in our tech center, working along side staff during group activities such as games or arts & crafts, and aiding residents to their desired activities. Our residents have a passion for horticulture, spending time in our green house or working in one of our gardens is another wonderful option to complete your mitzvah project. Busy schedules are a part of life, we also offer projects that can be done outside of the facility. These include collecting items to be used throughout the Center (i.e. books, games, CD’s, DVD’s, etc.), donating fresh flowers from bar/bat mitzvah, donating plants for the facilities green house or making something for the residents (i.e. center pieces, jewelry, baking, etc…)
