Volunteer Opportunities in Memory Care

Category: Memory Care

Author: Breann Mcgilvra Rogers, Memory Care Director

Volunteering in The Parkway Senior Living Memory Care Neighborhood can be an incredibly rewarding experience. Our Neighborhood caters to individuals living with many different types of dementia.

A caring volunteer assists memory care residents in gardening, bringing joy and connection to their lives.

Volunteers play a crucial role in enhancing the quality of life for our residents. From providing companionship to participating in stimulating events, the opportunities for volunteers are both meaningful and endless. Let’s delve into the various types of events you, as a volunteer, can be a part of within our Memory Care Neighborhood. 

At The Parkway, we offer numerous opportunities for volunteers to become involved in our Neighborhood. We welcome walking buddies for our Neighborhood walks, readers for our reading groups, music performers, and individuals for one-on-one sessions with residents. The Parkway Memory Care values activities that promote engagement, understanding, and compassion. We’re always open to new ideas and engagement opportunities.

Diverse Benefits of Volunteering in Memory Care

Volunteering with us offers various benefits, such as gaining insight into our community’s workings, educating those unfamiliar with dementia, or simply being part of something meaningful. One of our recent performers remarked on the emotional well-being music provides and was surprised by residents’ ability to recall certain songs.

With a higher occupancy at The Parkway Memory Care, we recognize the importance of providing different levels of engagement. Having volunteers allows us to offer small group activities rather than one large group, enabling us to tailor activities to everyone’s needs.

If you’re interested in volunteering or learning more, please contact me or the Resident Services Director. We’re eager to hear from you!
