Side by Side is an Alzheimer’s Society service that helps people with dementia to keep doing the things they love with the support of a volunteer. The one-to-one support makes it easier for people with dementia, who might sometimes feel isolated or find it difficult to leave their homes, remain active and feel part of their local community. By doing things like going for a walk, to a football match, or joining a local class together, volunteers can support people with dementia to take up hobbies and get out and about. You would need to commit to the project for a minimum of six months. Full training and support will be provided.
When: 2-3 hours per week (to suit your timetable)
Where: Cardiff, in the community
