About

LOCATION: South Seattle, Columbia City, Everett, Kent, and North Seattle Volunteer and Support Adult Day Health! The "Head's UP" program is specially designed for adults (18yr-60yr.) with acquired or traumatic brain injuries. Assist or lead a variety of fun activities for adults with an acquired brain injury. Volunteers needed between 9:00 am and 6:00 pm Monday-Friday, times depend on location. Full Life Care is the largest Adult Day Health organization in the Northwest. Our programs function much like senior centers -- places where older adults can socialize and enjoy group activities. We help frail elders and disabled adults maintain an independent and dignified lifestyle by enhancing their physical, social and cognitive functioning. Volunteers may choose to participate in any or all of the following activities: Share a special talent like musical performance, artistic skills, and interesting hobbies or even bring your pet to visit! Interact positively with participants by sharing conversation or just listening. Lend a hand at lunch, setting tables, serving meals and assist in clearing the tables. Co-lead Activity Groups: Provide motivation, good humor and a little extra help for those who need it. Activities include writing exercises, discussion groups, dancing, specially adapted games (example: balloon volleyball, bowling), simple crafts, sing-a-longs, educational presentations, bingo, pet visits, holiday parties and more. For more information, please call Lindsey at (206) 224-3764, email lindseyi@fulllifecare.org or visit our website http://www.fulllifecare.org
