Friendly Visitors

Friendly Visitors enhance the quality of life for the people they visit living with dementia by providing social interaction, mental stimulation, and emotional and physical support. The role of the Friendly Visitor is to reduce their "friends" sense of isolation by helping to keep them connected with the community and the outside world.
Some of the activities a Friendly Visitors may do with their friend is:
  • Talking
  • Reading aloud
  • Helping with light chores
  • Engaging in activities
  • Attending an event
  • Taking a walk
  • Escorting them to a doctor’s appointment
  • Helping run errands

​​If you or someone you know would like the company of a Friendly Visitor or you would like to volunteer to be a Friendly Visitor give us a call at 307-461-7134!
