About

Brighten an aging actor’s week! Be a friendly visitor to Calvin, a kind and amiable senior who is living with Alzheimer’s disease. Calvin is an actor who has lived in the Times Square area of Manhattan his whole life. He likes to wear a bow tie every day, always looks dapper, and always has a smile on his face.

Calvin would love a friendly visitor to converse with and liven up his week. However, Calvin’s Alzheimer’s is fairly advanced, and it limits his conversational abilities. We are looking for volunteers who have experience with Alzheimer’s disease (in a professional or personal capacity). There is a short orientation and training for this program, but we want someone who is familiar with and comfortable around individuals with Alzheimer’s disease.

Please apply to help make a big difference! When you apply please tell me about your experience with Alzheimer's disease.
