Help with feeding:

The number of residents with difficulties feeding themselves has increased, resulting in the need for more volunteers willing to learn to become certified feeders. If you know of anyone, who can donate their time for an hour or two at any of the meal times (8:00am, 12:00pm, 5:00pm), please encourage them to contact our Volunteer Coordinator. They will then be set up with some training times (at no cost to the volunteer) for the Feeding Course.

Help with music:

Music is very important to most of the residents at Labdara. Musicians who play musical instruments are invited to share their talents with us, as the residents enjoy taking part in singing and listening to traditional Lithuanian songs and listening to live musical performances. They often relate better with others through the gift of music.

If you have any talents, gifts or skills, musical or otherwise, and would like to share them, please consider volunteering at Labdara.
