Alzheimer's Society Volunteers Needed
Could you help someone with dementia to keep doing the things they love?
Side by Side volunteers support people living with dementia in the local community. This involves companionship for a person living with dementia helping them to take part in social and recreational activities, providing one-to-one support to enable them to continue with their hobbies and interests or engage in new ones. This would be for a few hours every week or fortnight in Armagh, Banbridge or Craigavon.
Activities could include going out for coffee, walking, cycling or fishing.
This role will suit you if you are:
- Passionate about supporting, enabling and empowering people with dementia and have a committed, flexible approach
- Have good verbal communication and listening skills, especially face to face
- Are happy to volunteer individually and remotely, yet understand you are part of a larger team
- Are willing to volunteer within service boundaries and to learn new skills
