Friendly visitors

Friendly visitors bring smiles of joy to our residents.


Volunteering is very important to the mission of Fairmount Homes. Dedicated volunteers bring a combination of time, skills and compassion to the lives of our residents, enhancing Fairmount’s warm, caring environment. Opportunities exist for a variety of volunteer-type activities on our campus. Some suggestions are listed below:


  • Assist residents with meals and refill ice pitchers in resident rooms
  • Adopt-a-flowerbed
  • Lead Bible studies
  • Serve as a friendly visitor
  • Organize and lead a birthday party or craft class
  • Share a hobby, lead a hymn sing, or provide music
  • Assist with the annual Benefit Auction and Chicken Barbecue
  • Assist with our annual Heritage Day
  • Serve as a Personal Care host or hostess at supper

Due to the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) threat, all visitors, including volunteers, are restricted from being on campus. We welcome your return to the roles you previously enjoyed when the threat is past. We sorely miss you and await your return when it is safe to have you here again.
