Dementia Respite Group

Naples Senior Center at JFCS offers weekly support groups for individuals with early to mid-stage dementia from 10:30 AM - 2:30 PM. Each group meets weekly for four hours including brain games, music therapy, chair exercises, and lunch. Volunteers are needed for our dementia respite group at St. Mark's Episcopal Church on Marco Island by filling in every now and then when our regular group volunteers are away on Mondays and Wednesdays. And when season starts we are going to start a seasonal group on Thursdays or Fridays we will need ongoing volunteers for.

All of our volunteers are integral to the successful running of this program. They help to create a safe and comfortable environment for our participants. All of our current volunteers always leave the group feeling really great. It is a very rewarding opportunity. Our volunteers often say they get more out of the group than the participants.

If you are interested in volunteering with NSC or want some more information on some of our other volunteer opportunities, please contact our Manager of Volunteer Services, Marna Barany at mbarany@naplesseniorcenter.org or (239) 325-4444.
