The In-Home Recreation Program is seeking fun-loving volunteers to brighten the days of our elders by visiting them in their homes. You'll get to spend quality time with some of the most interesting people around - just be warned, they may not remember your name by the end of the day!

Schedule is very flexible and visits will happen 1/week for 1 hour at client's home. 

But don't worry, that just means every visit will feel like a first date. Who doesn't love the excitement of introducing themselves over and over again? Plus, you'll have plenty of opportunities to tell your favorite jokes, play games, or just enjoy a good chat with your new friends.

So if you're ready to put a smile on someone's face and have a few laughs along the way, come join us at the Alzheimer Society Huron Perth. We promise it'll be a memorable experience - for both you and your new companions!
