Elders in Action’s Encore Action Teams Making A Difference
One of Elders in Action’s partners, the Portland Memory Garden, had a critical project to build an information kiosk in their special garden that is designed to meet the special needs of those with memory disorders (such as Alzheimer’s disease) and to provide respite for their caregivers. EiA contacted one of our corporate volunteer partners, Tokyo Electron Ltd., and before you know the kiosk was in place. Read about this powerful project below.
Elders in Action’s Encore Action Teams utilize a service learning approach which creates meaningful and rewarding hands-on service experiences for volunteers. Our Encore Action Teams provide service activities that are completed in a day or in a series which last a few weeks. Participants achieve a greater knowledge of issues affecting older adults and the projects make a real difference in people’s lives. If interested in becoming involved in a Encore Action team give us a call at 503-235-5474.
