Students interested in this service learning opportunity will assist the elderly population who reside at the Beehive House. The geriatric population can suffer from a variety of adverse health effects including depression, falls, and abuse. Geriatric depression is a common undiagnosed disease because of the lack of communication. Simple communication and interaction with this population can help treat and even prevent depression and other chronic diseases.
Opportunities for is service learning opportunity vary from assisting in activities and yard work.
Please contact Ashley if you are interested.
To volunteer, students should contact Beehive Homes directly. There are three houses locally. Students should ask for Ashley Carlile to volunteer. Students must sign a disclosure release statement and agree to certain privacy terms.
