Side by Side

Side by Side is a program for those living with Dementia that meets every Thursday from 9:45 to 2:15.  The day’s activities include brain gym, Bible Study, chair fit, a creative project, lunch, carpet bowling or other activity, and singing.  From time to time we have special events like a visit from animals or a slide show of a trip to an exotic destination.


The most important strength of Side by Side is that each participant is paired with a companion who spends the day with them and helps them with activities if needed.  The bonds that are developed are strong, and the love and caring make a difference for participant and companion alike.


Side by Side is always looking for volunteers to serve as companions,  If you are interested in being a part of this rewarding ministry please contact Ena, program coordinator at ….    Thank you.
