Friendly Visitor Program to Individuals with Dementia

Get Connected Icon
Until   Aug 9, 2017

Description

Be part of an innovative program to support individuals with dementia and their caregiver.

Volunteers socialize and engage with a person with dementia in their home while providing respite for the family caregiver. Commitment is one hour each week for 10 weeks following orientation and training, with a focus on engaging the participant in meaningful activities each week.

Training: 4 total hours, blended learning style: 2 hours of webinars from home; 2 hours in a classroom setting. The last 1-hour segment will be with the Alzheimer’s Association August 2017 where you will learn how to match a person’s ability with suitable activities that he or she can engage in.
