First Circle Friends
Many of us know someone – a spouse, parent, grandparent or friend – who has been affected by early- to mid-stage memory loss. LSI’s First Circle Friends is a creative ministry opportunity for your church to put your faith into action by supporting your neighbors that may be facing these issues.
Meeting twice a month at partner churches from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., First Circle Friends volunteers provide a day of renewal, friendship and support for people with memory loss and their family caregivers.
Trained volunteers from your church are matched one-on-one with participants for a day of cognitively stimulating activities, such as music, games, light exercise, painting and discussion groups that reminisce on past events, sports or history.
Meanwhile, family caregivers can enjoy a day off to rest and rejuvenate themselves for their caregiving role. You may even know individuals in your own congregation who would benefit from this kind of support.
