Dementia Buddies

Our specially trained volunteer dementia buddies make a huge difference to the quality of life of our patients with dementia by providing friendship and entertainment to keep patients’ morale engaged and positive. Dementia buddies can be involved in creating displays, making the day rooms comfortable and providing conversation and other valuable activities such as reading playing games, or just listening.

This would suit you if you are friendly and outgoing, enjoy meeting new people and like listening.
