Join Respite Care Charleston's social day program for adults with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia on Tuesdays and Thursdays at St. Johns Parish Church on Johns Island between 10:00am and 1:45pm.

A genuinely FUN experience, you'll work with our program participants on memory games, arts and crafts, light exercise, music therapy and other social activities designed to stimulate them in a positive and uplifting environment. Volunteers can help with meal preparation, serving and/or clean-up; assisting with planning and coordinating puzzles, games and arts and crafts; or other activities related to RCC's mission of improving the quality of life of those living with Alzheimer's or dementia.

Volunteering with RCC doesn't require medical expertise, a background working with seniors or any special skills really - just patience, a warm smile and a willingness to try and bring joy to others! Our programs are coordinated by full time staff with the support of program assistants, so you'll never have to worry about getting thrown in on your own. The ideal volunteer would be able / willing to work out a fairly consistent schedule with a minimum of one hour per visit, with at least one visit per month - simply so we're able to plan accordingly. (We certainly welcome volunteers who'd like to work longer or more frequent shifts!)

Please contact us to schedule your first visit!
