Review for DOROT, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a Dorot volunteer for around 6 years. It has truly changed my life. I have had the opportunity of visiting several senior citizens and getting to know them, making them my new friends. I am currently visiting a senior that has really become my family. He is alone and, although healthy, he is in great need of companionship. We spend special time together 2-4 hours a week in general, sometimes more. He has joined my family ( 2 boys and a husband) for many holidays and special dinners. He is our "grandpa". This experience has enriched all of our lives and my children have learned to understand this generation of people. It is beautiful to watch the different generations interact. I hope to continue volunteering for Dorot for years to come.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how it makes a better life for the elderly and lifts their spirits

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring and always smiling!
