General Visit Guidelines
At most facilities, we visit residents in common areas and also in their rooms.
Most facilities welcome musicians and singers of all levels.
Well behaved pets are allowed at some facilities. Check with the Visit Team Leader for the visit.
Photography is not allowed unless pre-arranged with the facility.
Although not required, volunteers are welcome to bring cards and small gifts such as socks, slippers, scarves, handkerchiefs, playing cards, puzzles, lap blankets, small bottles of lotion, soap and other personal items.
Please do not bring food.
We Need YOU!

New members are always welcome. For a meeting schedule, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meetings are held at different locations, according to the convenience of attendees. More often than not, they are at Genesis Healthcare (Potomac Center), 1785 S. Hayes Street, Arlington. The closest Metro stops is Crystal City. There is a parking lot.
