The Sunrise on Clayton program is a volunteer opportunity in partnership in with the assisted living facility of the same name, located not far from campus! Come spend some time with memory care patients or others living with dementia—you can help with activities such as playing cognitively stimulating games and solving puzzles with the residents, or you could join in on music and ice cream socials. It’s a great learning experience for yourself and an awesome way to get involved with service for the local elderly community.
We will set up transportation for groups of volunteers to go the Sunrise location near downtown Clayton, and all that is needed to participate is attending a one-hour orientation/training session hosted by Sunrise’s volunteer coordinator that will be held on campus. Locations and times to volunteer range from mornings to early afternoons, since activities for residents are spaced out throughout the day. Thanks for your interest!
