Volunteering: An opportunity to learn through service
to 31st July
Dementia Café Volunteer - Wythenshawe
Dementia Cafes are a great opportunity for carers of people living with Dementia to socialise and share their experiences. Together Dementia Support are looking for volunteers in Wythenshawe.
Together Dementia Support support people across Manchester and North Trafford to live positively with dementia.
Our services include Friendship & Activity groups, social outings, short-term carer respite and free carer training for family care partners.
Dementia Cafes are a great opportunity for carers of people living with Dementia to socialise and share their experiences.
Many of the carers who attend the cafes are struggling and need a break but still have to bring the person they care for with them.
Whilst the carers are able to get massages, share their concerns and gain advice from our Carer Support Leader and admiral nurses, our volunteers are a helping hand on the opposite side of the room for the people living with dementia.
As a volunteer you will chat, do activities and be a general support to people living with dementia, many of which will need 1:1 support.
The dementia cafes are only once a month so if you have less time available to volunteer every week, this could be the volunteering opportunity for you.
