The Georgia Infirmary dates back to 1832 when it served as the oldest African-American Hospital in the nation. Today it serves as an adult day health center, serving the elderly and those with physical disabilities. The center provides medical management, various therapeutic and recreational activities, and social connections for its clients. Through the coordination of these services, outlined by individualized care plans, St. Joseph/Candler helps their members maintain good health and functional independence and avoid potential institutionalized care. A volunteer is needed as a community connections coordinator, providing companionship to the members, aiding members in fostering social connections in the community, and providing daily activities.
