About

Mike's Place is a respite program of Meals on Wheels of Central Texas that offers support to individuals, families and caregivers dealing with the challenges of Alzheimer's Disease, memory loss and dementia. The program meets on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:30am-1:30pm. During this time caregivers can bring their loved ones with Alzheimer's Disease, memory loss or dementia to us for a fun program of activities including games, art, music, exercise, presentations by outside groups and a nutritious lunch. We are looking for caring volunteers who would like to join the fun at Mike's Place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Volunteers assist participants with program activities, socialize with participants, help to serve lunch, greet participants and families when they arrive, decorate the room, help with audio/video needs, lead games and more. We have a wonderful time and our program and volunteers make an important difference in the lives of families and individuals dealing with Alzheimer's Disease, memory loss and dementia.

We currenlty need volunteers on Tuesdays and Wednesdays 9:30am-1:30pm! You can also come half time (9:30am-11:30am or 11:30am-1:30pm) if that works better for you!
