Be a part of Travel Tales, a unique program designed to encourage participation, conversation and expression among Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. The Travel Tales program takes participants with early- and mid-stage dementia on an "excursion" to a U.S. or international destination, using a story or folk tale, facts about the destination, pictures and music resources to immerse them in the place.
Working with a librarian and other volunteers, you will go to memory care facilities in Sacramento where you will interact directly with the residents. Training specific to engaging with older adults, memory care philosophy, and HIPAA regulations will be provided in advance of visiting the facility.
We ask that you are able to commit to 2 to 3 hours, once a month, have a valid CA driver license and are able to provide your own transportation, and you must be at least 21 years of age.
