Adult Day Program Volunteer

Posted by on June 18th, 2015

Description

Our Adult Day Program benefits adults with Alzheimer Disease, dementia or cognitive impairment living in the community.  Programming is based on the principles of Montessori Methods for Dementia to provide a safe, error free environment focusing on people and not disabilities.  It takes place in a pleasant, homelike environment with a comfortable living room, dining room and patio for summer activities and BBQ.  Volunteers interact with participants throughout the day and assist them in the various activities.  They also assist the staff in set-up and clean-up throughout the day.  Volunteers may come for a couple of hours or stay the whole day.
