How can I find a volunteer to visit with my mom?
My elderly mom has early onset dementia. She lives with my dad and my brother and I live far out of state. My dad is not great about talking with my mom and spending quality time with her although he does read to her sometimes. I visit when I can but that it only every few months at best. I'm worried that she does not have enough social interactions and that this isolation will increase her decline. She has a bad hip so it's hard for her to walk and my dad does not arrange social outings for them. Does anyone know of an organization that would provide a kind volunteer to visit her once a week or so to talk -- maybe look at old photos, color, read, do a puzzle, etc.? Thanks so much for any help!
