Be a part of Tales and Travel a unique program designed to encourage participation, conversation and expression among Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. The Tales and Travel 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 several other volunteers you will go to memory care facilities in Sacramento where you will interact directly with the residents.
We visit Care Facilities on the third Thursday of every month except November and December. Our visits are scheduled to take place mid-morning or early afternoon (no evening visits).
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 be able to commit to 2 to 3 hours, once a month, have a valid CA driver license and be able to provide your own transportation.
