Join McLean’s Memory Care Volunteer Program to provide support to caregivers

The McLean Memory Care Volunteers provide non-medical services as needed for the Memory Care client and their family.  The broad range of services for clients may include one-to-one social interaction, sharing a passion for art or teaching a new hobby, music therapy, writing someone’s life history, reading aloud, or just simply engaging in conversation.  Clients may be served in their home or in assisted living or in a skilled nursing facility.

 It is easy to get started with a few simple steps and you can begin to make a difference in the lives of seniors and their care givers.

Please register no later than March 1st

 To complete the application go to: http://www.mcleanmemorycare.org/become-volunteer.   An interview is required as well as a 12-hour training class.

For more information, call Gao Vang, Volunteer Coordinator for Memory Care, 860-658-3941.

The Surgeon General recommends that adults should engage in moderate-intensity exercise for at least 30 minutes on most days of the week. For more information, see CDC's Nutrition and Physical Activity Program Web site."
