- A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
8 people are interested
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. 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.
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. Simply bring your smile and willingness to engage.
Once a week for 5-6 hours. Choose Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays in downtown Carnation, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. We have a large meeting room in a welcoming church. We usually host between 6-10 seniors, sometimes a few more or less. You'll be with 2 knowledgeable staff daily and sometimes other volunteers. 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.
Come help us create a welcoming environment of fun, respect and joy.
(Also seeking volunteers for Old Friends Club in Kirkland & Sammamish.)
About Old Friends Club
PO Box 2472, Kirkland, WA 98083, US
Old Friends Club cultivates joy in the lives of adults with cognitive impairment and nourishes the well-being of family caregivers.
Old Friends Club invites people with dementia or other cognitive impairments to participate in guided conversation, games, art, music, exercise and other activities. We meet in a small group that empowers each member to build friendships and care for one another. The activity and interaction help people remain living in their own home longer and address social and cognitive needs that other care options often don’t. Club members move from isolation to engagement. Their family caregivers gain respite and ongoing support, education and access to caregiving resources.
We'll work with your schedule.
