Make a Connection
This program matches volunteers with a person living with dementia for regular, personalized visits, while also providing the caregiver with a much-needed break. Visits can be made by phone, online or even safely in person. Together you can talk, read, listen to music, play games, watch movies or even go on walks with your new friend…the connection goes on!
