The neurological changes associated with Alzheimer’s Disease can make life profoundly lonely for the 5.4 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s. Patients may experience significant fear and confusion as a result of their dementia, making support from those around them vital. While families of Alzheimer’s patients try their best to provide this type of support, it is often difficult due to time constraints and long distances. Rutgers Alzheimer’s Buddies addresses this by pairing Rutgers volunteers with dementia patients at local memory care homes for weekly visits in order to alleviate the social and mental struggles many Alzheimer’s patients face. This not only provides comfort and mental stimulation for the patients, but also alleviates some of the burden carried by the families and provides Rutgers students the opportunity to become deeply involved in serving their surrounding community.
