About

Old Friends Club is a non-residential daytime program for older adults with mild to moderate cognitive challenges. We make lives better through music, conversation, exploring creativity, movement, and friendship.

Join us once a week to come alongside people with Alzheimer's or other dementia to help them stay socially engaged and physically active (while their family caregivers get a break!) We laugh and learn and are suprised daily with the stories that bubble up.

Old Friends Club is new in Kirkland and currently meets Mondays and Thursdays, from 9:30 to 2:30. The group will be no more than 12 to 15 people per day, plus two staff and (ideally) two volunteers daily. We are looking for volunteers who will arrive at 9am to help set up, assist with the activities of the day, serve and share lunch (provided), and help clean up at the end of the day. A six hour shift is great. Shorter shifts are also very helpful.

Help us create a welcoming environment of fun, respect and joy!

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