You can provide sunshine by making a new friend with a client who is still very social, friendly and happy to see you but is experiencing challenges with their memory. Many are still very physically able.
Visits can be weekly or every 2 weeks for as little as one hour total time commitment for an in-home visit or a couple of hours if you care to take them to an activity in which you share an interest (coffee & shopping, an art show, live music, shopping, bowling or even for a walk by the lake). By volunteering, you may also be providing some much-needed support to a caregiver or family member simply by visiting one of our wonderful clients.
