Description:

Activity groups are a great place for the community to socialise, relax in a supportive atmosphere. Once a month the activity group welcomes people living with dementia, their carers/family to sit down for a chat or get involved in the activities going on. Fun, often topical activities are organised to help people to enjoy themselves and reminisce. Activities include word searches, craft activities and reminiscence sessions.

We’re looking for volunteers to help support the running of the cafe. This will include making attendees feel welcome by chatting to them, encouraging them get involved in the activity and serving refreshments. We will also need help setting up and clearing the room.

St Anne's, Bristol activity group takes place on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month between 1:30pm and 3:30pm.

What are you looking for?

We’re looking for someone who loves to chat and hear people’s stories. We have regular attendees and new faces attending every month.

Your role will involve supporting people, so they can get involved in the wide range activities. This could involve explaining the instructions or completing the activity together. This will require a bit of patience and adaptability.

You will be working with a small group of volunteers and staff on the day, so we’re looking for someone who can work well in a team.

You don’t need to have experience or knowledge of dementia. We can offer online learning on this topic.

Practical Considerations:

This role involves minimal manual handling. You may need to help set up the room for the session, which can include tables. We would be happy to adapt if you would find this aspect of the role difficult. Our Memory cafes last two hours and you will need to be there before and after to help setup and tidy the venue.

You will not be required to give personal care to any of the attendees.
