Provide support to people with memory loss living alone. Become a Memory Mentor.
CATHOLIC CHARITIES HAWAII
Memory Mentor volunteers provide support and a social connection for people with memory loss or dementia who live alone and have little or no caregiving support. Volunteers are assigned to one or more seniors and call them on a regularly scheduled basis.
Prior to COVID-19 in-home support from volunteers was required. Until further notice telephone support will be provided by Memory Mentor volunteers as the safe delivery of care for both client and volunteer is paramount.
Memory Mentor Volunteers are responsible to: (1) contact their assigned senior(s) on a mutually-agreed upon schedule to provide social support to reduce loneliness, (2) may help prepare shopping lists, provide reminders and, (3) provide a safety check. The program helps seniors maintain their independence and ability to live at home as long as possible, and reduces social isolation and loneliness.
