What is Side by Side?
Side by Side is a free Alzheimer’s Society service to help people with dementia to stay active and involved in their local community.
With the support of the same local volunteer at each session, you can get out and about to keep doing the things you love or try something new. From golf to gardening, going out for a coffee to simply having a good old chat – what you both do together is completely up to you, You could even teach your volunteer something new.
How will I be paired with the right volunteer?
Once you have signed up for the service we will arrange a convenient time to chat to you and find out the things you enjoy.
We’ll tell you about the volunteers that are available in your area so you can pick who you’d like to be paired with. From there you can agree and discuss with your volunteer how often you’d like to meet going forward.
