Community 360° provides training for committed volunteers who want to spend time visiting nursing home residents in the Omaha Metro area. The commitment is  just one hour per week, but your simple weekly visit brightens lives and restores dignity for older adults who need us the most.  

Community 360º volunteers are trained to serve the older adults who do not receive visitors. We believe that no one living in a nursing home should have to experience the pain of feeling unloved and alone. 

If you have a strong passion to serve older adults and a high level of commitment, then Community 360º is for you.  

Volunteer Application Process

  1. Start the process by applying online. 
  2. You will be contacted for a casual, in-person interview.
  3. You will be asked to submit letters of reference and authorize a background check.
  4. You will be invited to register for the training course, “Volunteering in Long-Term Care,” which is mandatory for all Community 360° volunteers. 

“Volunteering in Long Term-Care” Group Training

In the group training, you will learn new skills, gain a sense of community and make new friends. The two-day training course is facilitated six times per year. Training prepares you for volunteering in a nursing home environment, and covers topics such as: communicating and engaging with older adults, wheelchair techniques, the landscape of the long-term care community, and examining the myths and stereotypes of aging. 

At the completion of the training, you and your graduating class Community Word Cloud
will be assigned to a long term care facility. From there, you and your team will work alongside the staff to provide companionship, love and dignity to many older adults who never get visits from anyone.  

In just one hour per week, you can make a lasting difference in the life of an older adult! 

Community 360º volunteers are known as a true asset to the care staff. If you want to make a real difference that you can see, we will provide the training you need to fulfill that desire.
