About

Join in fun activities and help guide seniors with Alzheimer's or other mild-to-moderate cognitive issues to have a meaningful day in a casual environment. We have openings for friendly volunteers once a week to help our members stay socially engaged and active (while their family caregivers get a break.) We play music and cards, try out art projects, and generally laugh and learn and tell stories at this non-residential daytime memory program for older adults.

Great times for parents with kids in school. We welcome volunteering adults of any age or skill-set. Retired, student or freelancer with flexibility, these few hours will enhance your week and that of so many others. Just bring your smile and willingness to engage. Choose Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays in the Rose Hill area of Kirkland, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

We have a large meeting room in a welcoming church. We usually host about between 8-12 seniors, sometimes a few more or less. You'll be with 2 knowledgeable staff daily and (ideally) another volunteer. If you can arrive at 9 a.m. to help set up chairs, etc, assist with the activities of the day, serve and share lunch, and help tidy up at the end of the day, then this is a great fit. A 6-hour shift is preferred. Shorter shifts are also very helpful. Want to volunteer with a friend or family member? We can do that.

Come help us create a welcoming environment of fun, respect and joy.

(Also seeking volunteers for Old Friends Club in Carnation & Sammamish.)
