Alzheimer’s Association, Maine Chapter, Volunteer Scribes Program

Aug 25, 2015— 10:30 am

Alzheimers-AssociationImagine you are living with Alzheimer’s disease and want your life story written while there is still time to do so.  If this sounds like you or someone you know, then be sure to attend this “Lewiston Volunteer Scribes Information Session” on Tuesday, August 25, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., in the first floor Couture Room at LPL.

Presented by the Alzheimer’s Association, Maine Chapter, the Lewiston Volunteer Scribes program features trained, supervised and dedicated Bates College students who will interview and write the life stories of those living with dementia.

“I am so glad that I had this opportunity to have my story written, while also getting to know my delightful and compassionate scribe,” said one recent participant in the Volunteer Scribes program.

Participants who are living with Alzheimer’s or related dementias are needed for this special program which enables those with memory issues to play an important role as teacher. By allowing students to record their life story, those with dementia provide students with invaluable lessons about life with an Alzheimer’s diagnosis.

“Working with my participant, getting to know him and his life – I never would have had this learning opportunity in the classroom,” stated a recent Volunteer Scribe.

There is no cost to this program and participation is completely private, confidential and fun!  Learn more about this fascinating service by attending this important information session. Advance registration is recommended by calling the Alzheimer’s Association (Maine Chapter) at 772-0115 or by email: mpechenik@alz.org. Walk-ins are also welcome to this event.
