Volunteering at Waveny

Discover why our Volunteers love Waveny

Join our volunteer team, and have fun while making a positive difference in the lives of others!

Every day, our volunteers reaffirm Waveny's reputation for excellence with their hard work and dedication. Together, our volunteers donate approximately 13,000 service hours to Waveny each year - that's the equivalent of more than six full-time staff members!

Our volunteers share their talents and enthusiasm with the residents, patients and participants throughout Waveny's family of healthcare services. They are spirited, special people who augment our professional staff, provide connections to the outside community, and provide one-on-one attention to those we serve.
