Are you looking for a fun and rewarding volunteer opportunity?
The Smith Alzheimer’s Center is seeking volunteers to assist staff with our community outreach programs. Designed to be fun, active and engaging, these programs fill a vital need for early-stage dementia patients and their caregivers. Join us for an informational meeting on Tuesday, July 25 to learn more about how you can volunteer.
Volunteers do not need to have a healthcare background. You just need a desire to make a difference in someone else’s life in our community. This can be also a fun way for you to stay active and healthy.
Examples of volunteer work may include:
- Distributing art supplies to participants in an art therapy program.
- Assisting participants in creating crafts or other projects.
- Serving lunch and refreshments.
- Helping set out small weights or help demonstrate an exercise for a lower body exercise class.
The Smith Alzheimer’s Center will provide training about Alzheimer’s and related dementias, and you will have a volunteer mentor to help you get started.
