Support participants with Early Stage Memory Loss (ESML) – especially during these times of distancing and social isolation – through our weekly enrichment class, the Gathering Place. Volunteers converse with class participants, assist with writing and drawing exercises and other activities, help make reminder calls, and enjoy the company of our participants. Classes are typically (online) on Tuesdays from 1 to 3PM (you work one per month), with occasional meetings with our staff.
Ideal candidates have some experience working with seniors or an interest in working with people with ESML, and are at least 21 years old. Background check required, yearlong commitment requested. Must have device and internet connection.
