Volunteers assist in first event with memory care residents

The residents from Sonata Coconut Creek’s Memory Care Apartments made masterpiece paintings with the help of Heart2Heart volunteers Dec. 18.

The special event was the first one of its kind catered specifically to residents at Sonata who are experiencing memory loss. Volunteers were paired more closely with the seniors to assist them in painting the canvases.

The residents displayed the resulting works of creativity and beauty with smiles of satisfaction and pride.

Becoming a Heart2Heart volunteer means that you are dedicated to serving the aging community. It means you want to connect in a meaningful way to a specific individual or to several people. It means you are committed to a consistent amount of time per month – whether that’s several hours a week or just a few hours per month.

Heart2Heart volunteers must be background checked and trained. Our training can be completed from your home on your computer or device, through the online Volunteer Portal. We run fingerprints in our office in Fort Lauderdale, and you can schedule an appointment with us after you finish the training.
