About the Program

Dementia can be highly isolating and the recent social distancing requirements haven’t helped. Make a Connection, 
Take a Break is an opportunity for people living with dementia to enjoy a regular, safe visit with a new friend, and take the pressure off family and caregivers for a welcome break.

3 Simple Steps

1

Introduction

Based on information you provide in a brief questionnaire, we match a person living with dementia with a volunteer to enjoy regular, COVID-safe, personalized visits.

2

Connect

Our multilingual trained volunteers connect with their matches by phone or through the internet – whatever works best. Visits can be a conversation on a favourite topic, time well-spent listening or singing along to music, discussing photos, or 
playing a game.

3

Recharge

While new friends visit and get to know each other, caregivers can take a few minutes to take care of themselves or other business.
