Activity groups are a great place for the community to socialise, relax and take part in variety of activities to stimulate the senses and memories. Once a month or fortnight the group welcomes people living with dementia, their carers/family to sit down for a chat or get involved in the activities going on. Fun, often topical activities are organised to help people enjoy themselves and reminisce in a supportive environment. Activities include wordsearches, craft activities and reminiscence sessions.
We’re looking for volunteers to help support the running of the cafe. This will include making attendees feel welcome by chatting to them, encouraging them get involved in the activity and serving refreshments. We’re looking for people who love to chat and hear people’s stories. Your role will involve supporting people, so they can get involved in the wide range activities. This could involve explaining the instructions or completing the activity together. This will require a bit of patience and adaptability. You will be working with a small group of volunteers and staff on the day, so we’re looking for someone who can work well in a team. You don’t need to have experience or knowledge of dementia. We can offer online learning on this topic.
