About

Become a Special Friend to a resident at Gianna Homes. This resident was a teacher and then a saleswoman. She is younger and earlier on in her dementia disease progression and would like some extra attention. She likes to keep things sassy!

Spend time in our gardens chatting, stop over for tea or to watch "Ellen" together, or just drop in. You could keep in touch with cards when you are not able to visit in person. She would especially like to go on outings and may be even yoga classes.

Ideal candidates would feel confident interacting with people with dementia and be able to visit weekly and have availability during the daytime hours.
