Silverado Memory Care Community
When: Engagements (Activities with the Seniors) are from 9-12 and 1-5 each day. You do need to meet with them to be oriented to their community, so making an appointment before attending is important.
Where: 25100 Calabasas Road | Calabasas, CA 91304 (click for Google Maps)
What will I be doing: Silverado Memory Care Community is a specialized retirement home designed to accommodate seniors who have dementia. Volunteers will be guided by one of the staff members and interact with the seniors in a variety of ways. Depending on your volunteer time, you can expect to play games with the seniors or engage in stimulating conversations.
** What I need are volunteers who want to be in engagements with our residents. Many of the Seniors are living with Dementia.
Contact info: For any questions, please contact Holly Freedman Hollander (Director of Resident Engagement at Silverado) at email@example.com or (818) 222-1000.
