Organisation: Alzheimers Society
From joining a local club, going to the football, or just going for a stroll in the park- Side by Side requires volunteers to support people with dementia on a one to one basis, to retain hobbies and interests or to take up new ones, and to get out and about, encouraging access to everyday places. This extra support can make it easier for people with dementia, who might sometimes feel isolated or find it difficult to leave their homes, to do things we might take for granted. The service is highly flexible and built around the individual and their needs. Side by Side helps to reduce stigma, ensuring people with dementia feel confident and remain connected to their community.
Full training and support is provided throughout your time volunteering with the Society.
