Are you looking for a fulfilling way to make a difference in the lives of individuals impacted by dementia?  Join our team of dedicated volunteers and be a catalyst for positive change in our community!

What is The Friends Place?

Our program focuses on creating a supportive and engaging environment for individuals living with dementia.  We organize a variety of activities designed to enhance their well-being, cognitive abilities, socialization, and overall quality of life.  From art therapy and music sessions to gentle exercises and memory games we provide person centered care.  Their dedicated caregivers receive a few hours to practice self-care without the demands associated with dementia.

Why Volunteer with us?

  • Make a profound impact: Your presence and dedication can bring joy and comfort to individuals and their families by reducing the isolation associated with dementia.
  • Personal growth and development: You’ll gain invaluable experience working with people living with dementia. You’ll develop empathy, patience and communication skills that can be applied to various aspects of your life.

People don’t volunteer because they enjoy working for free. 
They volunteer to change the World.
