About

So Rewarding. Join in fun activities and help guide seniors with Alzheimer's or other mild-to-moderate cognitive issues to have a meaningful day in a casual environment. We have openings for friendly volunteers once a week to help our members stay socially engaged and active (while their family caregivers get a healthy break.) We play music and cards, try out art projects, and generally laugh and learn and tell stories at this non-residential daytime program for older adults.

We welcome volunteering adults of any age or skill-set. Great times for parents with kids in school. Retired, student or freelancer with flexibility, these few hours will enhance your week and that of so many others. Just bring your smile and willingness to engage.

Once a week for 5-6 hours. Choose Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays in Pine Lake area of Sammamish, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. We have a large meeting room in a welcoming church. We usually host between 5-9 seniors, sometimes a few more or less. You'll be with two knowledgeable staff daily and usually other volunteers. If you can arrive at 9 a.m. to help set up chairs, etc, assist with the activities of the day, serve and share lunch, and help tidy up at the end of the day, then this is a great fit. A 6-hour shift is preferred. Shorter shifts are also very helpful. Want to volunteer with a friend or family member? We can probably accommodate you.

Come help us create a welcoming environment of fun, respect and joy.
