About

Many seniors and adults with disabilities want to stay in the comfort of their homes, but need extra support for their bodies, minds, and hearts. And their caregivers need a break to re-energize.

  • Encourage movement during chair exercise
  • Support the process of expression during art therapy
  • Share joy during song circle
  • Be there to fully hear and honor the memories triggered by an activity
  • Enjoy the variety of new activities being created every week (Do you have a special talent you would like to share? Let us know.)

If you are excited to build relationships and are available weekdays between 10am and 3pm, this will be a very rewarding opportunity! Commit to one activity for 1-2 hours a week or 3-4 hours a week to sample several.

Be the one to engage a participant with dementia or traumatic brain injury. Break their social isolation by sharing laughter, movement, and conversation.

Program orientation and on-going feedback and coaching provided. Join a team of dedicated and fun staff in improving the lives others.
