About

Age of Central Texas Memory Connections Program is currently seeking volunteers to facilitate a variety of activities at several of our early memory loss support program sites around Austin.

The Memory Connections program is an evidence-informed program for people experiencing early memory loss, such as mild cognitive impairment or early stage Alzheimer's disease. The participants in this program meet weekly to enjoy various cognitive and physical activities to exercise their brains. Memory Connections provides a safe place where older adults experiencing early memory loss can share their challenges and emotions with others in similar situations.

Possible volunteer roles include:

Lead our participants in brain booster activities, such as trivia

and puzzles (9:30 am - 10:30 am)

Find interesting current events articles to share and facilitate discussion with our participants (10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Lead gentle exercise, such as chair yoga (11:30 am - 12:00 pm)

Assist our participants with a creative activity like art or writing (1:00 pm - 2:30 pm)
