Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Normandale Center for Healing & Wholeness

This is an opportunity to provide respite and engagement as an in home memory care companion, to a senior with memory loss.

Volunteers will be trained and matched with a person with milk and moderate memory loss, dementia or Alzheimer's disease to provide socialization, meaningful activities and friendly visiting. Visits will take place3 in the client's home.

The purpose and role of this position is to provide safe and nurturing support for the person with memory loss - while giving their caregiver (typically a spouse or a family member) an opportunity to take a break from his/her caregiving responsibilities.

Provide visiting and activities that are meaningful and appropriate to the stage of memory loss (ex, listening to music, doing art projects, looking through pictures or playing games).

The Engagement Coordinator will attend the first scheduled volunteer visit to ensure the volunteer, client and caregiver are comfortable with the process. The caregiver will remain present the first visit.
