Our volunteers are the best
Volunteers are a very valuable asset to our Serene Team. Our flexible program welcomes people from all walks of life. There are a variety of ways that you can give your time, talents, and experience.
Some of the ways to help include:
- Support patient and families with companionship visits.
- Provide administrative support in our office.
- Military veterans that volunteer with us can work with patients that are also veterans.
To become a volunteer, you must complete an application. Serene gives volunteers specialized training to develop the skills they’ll need to work with patients and their families. Each volunteer is free to choose how much time he or she would like to give to volunteering.
Benefits of Volunteering
Volunteers often find that their greatest satisfaction comes from contributing to the wellbeing of others. The gifts of time, energy, and skills fill a unique role that only they can provide. No matter how you volunteer, we see volunteers as an important piece of our interdisciplinary team.
Practicums and Internships
For students in the Omaha area, we do offer practicums/internships in the fields of Gerontology and Social Work. These students are an important part of our team and are able to work with patients, families, and staff, while also working on individual projects.
If you are interested to join our Serene Team as a volunteer or practicum student, please contact our office at 319-338-5503.
