I had been searching for a volunteer assignment with senior citizens for months when a friend told me about DOROT. I applied to DOROT and before long I was making more progress than I had with any of the previous organizations I had contacted. Pretty soon, I was interviewed and cleared the screening process.
I have now been a DOROT Friendly Visitor volunteer for two months and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I was matched with a delightful senior citizen. We thoroughly enjoy each other's company and look forward to our weekly visits. We have taken walks, gone to the movies and shared meals together. I have also accompanied her on Doctors' visits. She, on the other hand, is very encouraging and supportive of me. We both feel our lives have been enriched as a result of our relationship. Thanks to the amazing staff at DOROT for bringing us together!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the effort and attentiveness the staff involved took to match me and my senior. The staff obviously listened to each of us keenly and did their best to meet our needs . . . and they did!
