Mission Statement

The mission of our program is to provide individual designed activities as well as socialization for persons with memory loss and to offer respite,
information and peace of mind to the caregivers by assuring them that their loved one is safe and well cared for.

 

Our Philosophy

Our program is not affiliated with any State or Federal enterprise, but we do base our program on the Oregon State sanctioned "Best Friends Approach to Alzheimer's Care". This means our trained volunteers learn about a person's history, their likes, dislikes and their special needs. Then, together they can spend quality time enjoying life!

 

A Word or Two About The "Best Friends" Approach

Oregon State has adopted "The Best Friends Approach To Alzheimer's Care" as an initiative for all long-term care settings, including in-home care. It is person centered and life affirming based on a universal concept.

 

Friendship

Anyone; a family member, a volunteer or Team Leaders can become a Best Friend to a person with Alzheimer's. Our program uses this approach in caring for your loved one. We are a private, all volunteer, non-profit organization.

Program Fee: $10 per day - scholarships are available to enable everyone to participate. This cost is augmented by private donations, fund raisers, grants, program fees and our Christmas Wreath Project.

Eligibility: People with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia and who are not able to manage day to day activities without assistance.

Our hours are 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM Monday, Wednesday & Thursday with lunch being provided.

Experienced volunteers are an integral part of the Memory Loss Center's success. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, we'd love to hear from you.
