Do you have some time to spare? Want to make new friends?
Connect with a wonderful group of residents and staff at Eaton Senior Communities by volunteering.
The average age of our residents is 82 and many do not drive. They enjoy on site activities and meeting new people. Many of our residents are from the Denver area, but some have moved here to be near family and no longer live near friends. Your visits and volunteer efforts are greatly appreciated and we will work with you to make your volunteer experience enjoyable.
Current Volunteer Opportunities:
- Games - ½ hour to 1 hour per week
Cards, Penny-ante Game, Kismet, Wii Games, Board Games, Quizzes

Bring something to talk about, such as an antique, a photo or any object that will help strike up a group conversation. Show pictures and ask what the residents think is happening.
