A few hours per week
Long-Term (6 months-1 year)
San Diego County
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.
