On September 24, 8 volunteers graduated from our 3rd class and have ll begun serving clients. The volunteers serve clients in our local community as well as here on our campus and their primary goal is to visit clients with the diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer’s.
The visits may range from 15 minutes to an hour with a goal to create a positive moment in their day. This can include painting, listening to music, reminiscing, or enjoying the outdoors. To become a memory care volunteer, applicants complete a 12-hour training curriculum, as well as participate in an ongoing mentoring program and monthly in-service training on timely and useful subjects.
