Recreational activities are many and for each, a number of dedicated volunteers are needed to remind residents of the activity, encourage participation and help residents get to the venue. If the event is one where refreshments are served, volunteers help serve and then collect dishes afterwards. At the end, the volunteers help residents return to their rooms. Recreation Assistants find this is a great way to get to know residents, staff and other volunteers in a fun setting.
