Mission Statement

• Socialization for our friend
  • Enjoyable time for all involved
  • Engage in activities while helping to preserve skills
  • Enable her to keep involved in social relationships through friendship care visits
  • Enrich her life in areas of trust, self-esteem, and social interaction
  • Encourage her through positive feedback
• Provide a needed break for her husband and/or family
  • Provides a block of time that he can use however he wants
  • Prevents his social isolation by allowing him to engage in activities away from his home
  • Promotes a sense of relief knowing that he has a team of ladies who sincerely care about his wife
• Share our model of friendship visits with churches, communities, families and any organization wanting to help a friend with dementia
  • Our group that was organized first  includes 14 ladies serving as Lady-Links to one woman with Alzheimer’s dementia.  The second group that was organized includes 10 ladies serving as Lady-Links to one woman who has mini vascular dementia.   We think our model can be used by any number of people willing to organize and make visits to someone with any cognitive issue.
  • This model of friendship care visits can be used with men (just change some of the activities to appeal to men).
  • The name can be adjusted to include both men and women making friendship visits, such as Lasting-Links.
  • This model can be used with a family organizing visits by children to a family member with cognitive issues and could be called Little-Links.
  • A church or senior living facility can easily apply this model to serving its members/residents.
  • All information is available for free download.
  • Use our contact information if you have specific questions.
