Description

Companion Volunteers provide in-home breaks to caregivers in the form of social visits with their loved one who has Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. Volunteers do not help with any physical or personal care. Volunteers spend time with individuals who have dementia to provide: 


*companionship - encouraging reminiscing about the past or enjoying a movie together

*socialization - engaging in activities such as games, listening to music or gardening

*supervision - ensuring their safety while their caregiver is absent.


Must have excellent people skills, such as being caring and patient. Experience working with persons with dementia a plus, but not required. Training will be provided. Time requirement: approximately four hours per week. We are currently looking for volunteers with weekday availability.
