McLean Memory Care Volunteers Give the Gift of Time to Those with Dementia and their Families

McLean Memory Care Volunteer training session begins September 15

Generosity comes in many forms. For the Memory Care Volunteers at McLean, it means sharing a few hours a week providing personalized attention and participating in activities that bring meaning, enrichment, satisfaction and joy to those with memory loss. McLean’s Memory Care Volunteer Program will begin a training session for those interested in giving the gift of their time September 15. This unique program matches specially-trained Memory Care Volunteers with clients who live at McLean or in the community. Volunteers are supported by a mentoring program and monthly in-service training on timely and useful subjects. For more information call Gao Vang or Kathy Garneau at 860-658-3941 or to download the application go to www.McLeanMemoryCare.org/become-volunteer. Application deadline is August 29.
