Montefiore is a nonprofit organization that offers a comprehensive system of healthcare services for seniors. Montefiore offers both residential and community programs with the goal of providing a continuum of quality care. Founded in 1882, Montefiore has more than a century of experience in caring for seniors. Programs include long-term nursing care, post-hospital care, a dementia special care unit, home health care, hospice care, wellness clinics, and rehabilitation therapies.
What we do there:
Service participants support some of the many recreational activities that Montefiore offers its residents. Tuesday participants join residents in "Bubbe's Kitchen," a cooking program in which volunteers transport residents to the kitchen and then join them in learning about, preparing, and sampling traditional Jewish recipes such as Matzo Ball soup and hamentaschen--or not-so-traditional items like banana splits! Wednesday participants assist with the weekly Bingo game, transporting residents, distributing materials, calling the game, and joining in the fun.

Details and Registration

Service participants in this activity will help residents enjoy an on-site carnival for the Jewish Holiday of Purim. This includes transporting residents from their rooms to the carnival (pushing their wheelchairs or escorting them), helping the residents play games, and serving them food (hamantachen cookies and punch). When the carnival is over, students will transport the residents back to their units.
Purim is a fun holiday, so service participants are encouraged to dress up in costumes - keeping in mind that they should be appropriate to an older audience and non-offensive to any groups of people. Costumes are not required.
