CareFusion Hosts an Interactive Game Day for Seniors!

September 25, 2014 - Serving Seniors

Last week, a large group of employees from CareFusion volunteered at the Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center in a super fun and unique way – by hosting a Game Day for seniors. With the logistical help and coordination from event masterminds, Right Hand Events, they were able to create their own volunteer experience like no other. An enormous crowd of seniors showed up to participate in Game Day and it was obvious by the noise level alone that they were enjoying themselves. They competed against one another and CareFusion employees in Wii bowling, chess, dominoes and ping pong.

The energy was contagious and everyone seemed to be having a blast throughout the day. A photo booth was set up with silly props which added to the fun and provided souvenir photos for seniors to take with them. While our seniors have a wide variety of activities offered to them on a daily basis at our Wellness Center, it is quite special to have so many young people to engage with in such a fun way. These types of events offer our seniors the opportunity for some quality intergenerational interaction, something many of them rarely get in their daily lives. Thank you to everyone at CareFusion who came out to play and to Right Hand Events for making Game Day seamless and smooth for everybody involved.

If you or your company would like to create your own unique volunteer experience, contact Tim Ruis, Manager of Activities & Volunteers, to discuss potential opportunities.
