Companion Volunteer

  3/22/2017   Alzheimer's San Diego
 Job Description        

Companion Volunteers provide in-home breaks to caregivers in the form of social visits with their loved one who has Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. Volunteers do not help with any physical or personal care. Volunteers spend time with individuals who have dementia to provide: companionship - encouraging reminiscing about the past or enjoying a movie together; socialization - engaging in activities such as games, listening to music or gardening; and supervision - ensuring their safety while their caregiver is absent.

 

 Qualifications        

Must have excellent people skills, such as being caring and patient. Experience working with persons with dementia a plus, but not required. Training will be provided. Time requirement: Minimum six-month commitment; approximately four hours per week. We are currently looking for volunteers with weekday availability.
