Wheathampstead Dementia Club – Brief Job Description for Volunteers
Do you have an interest in supporting a dementia-friendly community group of people with dementia and their carers? We are a well established, independent group with good links to the Alzheimer’s Society. We normally meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, except August, 10.30 to 12 pm at the Mead Hall and normally have up to 25 people attending. We sometimes have outings and speakers.
We are particularly in need of volunteers who could come along and help with serving refreshments and setting up tables and taking down at the end or who could just chat to our members. For those involved in set up or refreshments, we would appreciate people who could be available from 10 am. We would also welcome volunteers who could help with transport, though most of our members make their own way to the Mead Hall. We encourage people with dementia to come with a relative or carer.
We are seeking people with an interest in and empathy towards those people living with dementia and their carers and who are team players with good communication skills.
If so, please contact John Gladwin on 01582 834223, Isobel Poole on 01582 832439 or Margaret Carter on 01582 832368.
