Desert Hills Memory Care residents volunteer at Valley Restart Shelter


Last updated 10/30/2017 at Noon

HEMET – Desert Hills Memory Care, located at 25818 Columbia Street in Hemet, is giving back to the community in the Hemet San Jacinto Valley. Residents and associates from Desert Hills volunteered at Valley Restart Shelter Thursday, Sept. 21, on the first of several service days the community will be spending at VRS.

Valley Restart Shelter is a nonprofit agency committed to ending homelessness by providing training and resources families and individuals need to restart their lives. While still offering food, shelter and other basic needs, Valley Restart’s goal is to help the homeless get off the streets permanently by helping them find effective solutions.

For the residents at Desert Hills Memory Care, volunteering is a meaningful opportunity to experience the joy of giving back.

“Often, those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of memory loss feel as though they have nothing left to give,” Rachael Wallace, life enrichment director at Desert Hills, said. “Volunteering with an agency like Valley Restart gives our residents a chance to contribute and benefits their lives just as much as it helps the shelter.”

To join Desert Hills Memory Care on future service days at Valley Restart Shelter, contact Wallace for more details at (951) 652-1837.
