The sessions activities which are based on a set manual programme are prepared by the Facilitator and are run twice weekly. You will assist the Facilitator in providing the person-centred activities which support planning and organising thoughts and which stimulate language. You will help keep everyone involved and engaged, will show respect for the client and help them retain their dignity. These group sessions help clients get to know each other and you will help build a relationship between the clients and yourself. If you are wanting to make a difference to someone living with Dementia, then this volunteer position is for you with the expectation that you volunteer first in one of our activity group settings to become familiar and confident in interacting with those living with Demetia.
