Share your talent and play for an appreciative audience. Share your talent on guitar, piano, etc. Have a penchant for poetry or watercolor? What do you love to do that you'd like to share? Want to volunteer but only have a few hours every month or so?
Old Friends Club is a daytime social club where adults with dementia come together in a social environment to stay engaged, have coffee and lunch, and enjoy the arts and some physical activity (while their family caregivers take some time for themselves.)
Most of our Members deal with mild to moderate Alzheimer's or other cognitive challenges. We laugh and learn and enjoy the stories that bubble up. Life is better shared. We welcome volunteers who want to join us occasionally and add variety and richness to the day with:
- a musical talent
- a sing-along
- a therapy pet
- gardening? woodworking? poetry? storytelling? juggling? origami?
- What would you like to share?
Old Friends Club meets in Carnation on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Your visit for an hour or so to share an interest or talent makes a big difference. Visit just once or schedule time to return every month or two. We also have locations in Kirkland and Sammamish.
Help us create a welcoming environment of fun, respect and joy!
