Memory Mentor volunteers provide in-home support and 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 visit them on a routine basis. Volunteers are responsible to: (1) contact their assigned senior(s) on an agreed upon schedule to provide social support to reduce loneliness, (2) may also help with grocery shopping, light meal preparation, review mail, provide reminders and, (3) provide a safety check. The program helps seniors maintain their independence and ability to live at home, and reduces social isolation and loneliness.
