Staff Report for The Island Connection
Join Respite Care Charleston’s social day program for adults with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia on Tuesdays and Thursdays at St. Johns Parish Church between 10:00 a.m. and 1:45 p.m.
A genuinely FUN experience, you’ll work with program participants on memory games, arts and crafts, light exercise, music therapy and other social activities designed to stimulate them in a positive and uplifting environment. Volunteers can help with meal preparation, serving and/or clean-up; assisting with planning and coordinating puzzles, games and arts and crafts; or other activities related to RCC’s mission of improving the quality of life of those living with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
Volunteering with RCC doesn’t require medical expertise, a background working with seniors or any special skills really – just patience, a warm smile and a willingness to bring joy to others.
Programs are coordinated by full time staff with the support of program assistants, so volunteers never have to worry about getting thrown in their your own. The ideal volunteer can work a fairly consistent schedule with a minimum of one hour per visit, with at least one visit per month.
