Brookdale at Harrisonburg Harrisonburg Service-Learner At Brookdale Harrisonburg every day is an opportunity for Brookdale associates to deeply connect with people in a profound and personal way. For our residents, we provide comfortable lifestyles and caring environments, with opportunities to improve wellness, fulfill lifelong wishes, and stay connected with friends and loved ones.

Mission: It all starts with listening to and understanding the unmet needs of those we are talking with; their hopes and uncertainties for themselves or for loved ones. Then we partner with them to determine a solution designed to help enrich their lives. We believe that growing older doesn't mean the options for enjoying life have to shrink. Our philosophy is that we're all aging, but that should never keep us from living.

Harrisonburg Parks and Rec Canteen Program Harrisonburg Canteen Program Volunteer "Harrisonburg Parks and Recreation will be hosting a series of events for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, called the “Canteen Program.” We are asking your organization to get involved by bringing refreshments and engaging in social as well as recreational opportunities. Sharing and caring is the best description of your volunteer experience. Unbelievably, there are no costs to any of our participating members. All of our services, dedication, and fun, food, and good times are free. This makes volunteering a critical part of the organization. This is an opportunity to develop and foster new relationships and to help host meaningful and successful events for all our Canteen program participants. Combining our numerous programs with amazing volunteers is the reason Harrisonburg Parks and Recreation continues to be so successful. Join us now as a volunteer, as we try to help those who mean so much to us and our Harrisonburg community. Fun nights including dances, athletic events, craft nights, game nights, and many other events will bring us all, members and volunteers, together for fun, relaxation, exercise, and positive social interactions. Historically our volunteers have served our service needs by volunteering time, refreshments, decorations, and ideas for fun and engaging activities and events. Some organizations may be able to use this experience for meeting additional service learning credit hours and/or volunteer requirements. With that in mind, below are a number of expectations that will help everyone gain a more specific understanding of what this experience will entail. 1.Setting up the facility for the event. This includes but is not limited to set up of tables and chairs, bleachers, audio system, as well as break down and clean up. This also includes helping with making and/or setting up decorations, helping to prepare, provide, and serve refreshments for the events, all as needed. 2.Engagement with participants is key. You may engage with them by sitting, conversing, and even possibly dancing with participants depending on the activity. The focus is on positive engagement.3.The expectation is that all volunteers report to the event at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the event.4.Volunteers should be able to provide their own transportation to and from the event. 5.The Harrisonburg Recreation Department will provide overall supervision of the event and help to provide instructions and directions for all volunteers.
