Founded in 1940 by Gladys Bownes, Barnwell’s staff strives to continue Gladys’ vision of excellent nursing care coupled with the notion that a stay in a nursing home, for either long term care or short term rehabilitation, should be an experience filled with caring and respect for the dignity of the individual.

Volunteerism at Barnwell is an enriching and exciting experience for our residents and serves to enhance the quality of life at our facility. At Barnwell we are fortunate to have a core group of volunteers, both young and old, who are dedicated to "giving back" to the elders in our community and offer a variety of interactive volunteer services. Volunteers participate in recreational activities, including games, sports and education and serve as companions for our residents by socializing one-on-one, assisting with physical and occupational therapy and participating in activities. Volunteering time at Barnwell is priceless in value, as our volunteers contribute to making our residents’ stay here more pleasurable and complete.
Volunteering schedules are flexible and based upon the availability of the individual volunteer. Giving of themselves and their time and with great appreciation from residents, families and staff, volunteers are able to spend time with our residents during days, evenings, and weekends.
