Thanks for your interest in possibly volunteering with us. Silver Club Programs offer Adult Day Enrichment programs for people with memory loss, due to Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. Our club members enjoy socializing, music, creative activities, exercise, but require some structure and supervision. Our program meets 5 days/week from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm. Usually volunteers come for at least a 2-hour shift, and assist with either morning activities: helping with set up and welcoming, socializing during the coffee hour, exercise, crafts, discussion or music groups. The afternoon volunteers assist with lunch (we all bring our lunch and eat with the club members as it's a time to socialize) afternoon activities, and clean up.

We are always looking for volunteers with special skills, such as piano or guitar players to lead sing-alongs, people who have sewing, cooking, or horticulture interests, etc.

We meet Monday through Friday at the Turner Senior Resource Center on Plymouth Rd. in Ann Arbor.

We work hard to create an environment that is welcoming, safe, and comfortable, where people feel they are part of a community. Having volunteers and students enables us to provide much more individualized programming than would otherwise be possible.

Thank you for your interest in our programs! We look forward to hearing from you.
