Alzheimer's Society - Side by Side volunteering
Side by Side is a new Alzheimer's Society service that helps people with dementia to keep doing the things they love.
The service helps people get out and about with the support of a volunteer doing an activity of their choice. This might be anything from joining a local club, to going to the football, a cafe or simply a stroll in the park.
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 and feel part of their local community. The service is highly flexible and built around the individual and their needs.
They also have a Side by Side phone line run by volunteers. You might like to do both – it really can be as flexible as you need it to be. Find out more about Side by Side.
