Volunteers contribute in many ways and are important to supporting the well-being of residents in the four facilities previously owned by Keiro. To maintain continuity of services following the recent sale of the healthcare facilities, the new operators have engaged Keiro to manage the volunteer program.

Brandon Leong, Keiro’s director of community advancement, will provide support to the facilities and residents by recruiting and orienting new volunteers, overseeing volunteer recognition, and creating new opportunities for volunteers to remain engaged in supporting the residents.

“We appreciate the many volunteers who give so generously to support the residents,” said Clark Nelson, regional director of operations for Aspen Skilled Healthcare, operator of the nursing facilities. “We are grateful to Keiro for their continued involvement with the volunteer program and share their commitment to supporting residents’ needs. We encourage and welcome volunteer participation by the community.”

Volunteering is not only good for the community, it’s good for your own health. Studies show that volunteers enjoy longer lives, have lower rates of depression and heart disease, and are better able to keep up with the physical demands of everyday life.
