We are seeking volunteers to help with our Respite program. The Respite program is an opportunity for family caregivers of people living with dementia to participate in our Retreat programs for their own self-care while their loved one is participating in meaningful, engaging programming that is based on the Montessori method.
The family caregiver may choose to take the opportunity to run errands, engage in social activities or just take some time alone resting from the day to day responsibilities of caregiving for their loved one.
Each participant will be paired with one volunteer companion for the program. The volunteers will help guide the participants through the activities and help with serving lunch. The participants will be required to self-toilet and self-ambulate with our without assistive devices. Volunteers will NOT be asked to transfer or help with toileting.
Dementia training is required and lunch is provided for FREE!
