iPod Tech Volunteering
For an individual with Alzheimer’s disease or other age-related dementias, the key to unlocking music-triggered memories is hearing music that has personal memories for that individual. Community Care, a Music and Memory certified agency, seeks volunteers with strong technical skills to assist our Music & Memory Technical Coordinator in preparing personal musical playlists and iPods for persons receiving our Music and Memory in-home care.
Do you have these skills? Do you have the desire to help individuals with dementia who are “alive inside”? Please contact Nancy Steinke, Community Care’s administrator: 215-335-4416 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have skills/experience with videography? Community Care is looking for a special volunteer to shoot and edit two very brief videos:
- Vignette giving an overview of Community Care’s mission and services
- Video of a person with dementia coming alive through music-triggered memories when listening to an iPod filled with music from the individual’s personal playlist.
If either creative opportunity is intriguing to you, please contact us for more information: 215-335-4416. Click Here for Community Care of the Northeast’s Volunteer Application.
