Opportunity Description:

The Volunteer Companion Program (VCP) is a one-on-one friendly visiting program for persons living with dementia presented by the Alzheimer Society of Prince Edward Island (ASPEI). The program is offered Island-wide and seeks to improve the quality of life for persons with dementia through social interaction and cognitive stimulation. In addition, it provides a time of respite for the primary care partner. We are looking for volunteers province-wide. VCP offers both in-person or virtual visiting options for volunteers and participants. In-person visits take place in the participant’s home, outdoors, or on outings in the community. Virtual visits happen by phone or video chat. Visits will occur weekly for 1-2 hours decided by the care partner and volunteer. During this time the volunteer will provide the participant with friendly interaction, connection, and meaningful activities based on interests, skills, and abilities.
