Journey

Journey is a respite program offering a weekly meeting full of faith-based care to those with early stage Alzheimer’s or dementia and their caregivers.

Meeting Dates and Times

We will meet every Thursday from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Tolleson Family Activity Center. Also, we will not meet in August and will follow all HPUMC church holidays/closings and the DISD inclement weather program.

Trained volunteers will provide support and encouragement to ministry participants with a minimum of one volunteer to every two group participants.

Meetings will combine socialization, physical movement, music, art, and other memory-stimulating activities. Plus, lunch will be served in a safe and comfortable environment. 

While those with Alzheimer’s or dementia and their caregivers navigate this challenging journey, our respite program is here to offer a safe refuge, allowing caregivers a four-hour window to attend to their personal needs with the assurance that their loved one is being well cared for.

Volunteers Needed

Journey is looking for dedicated, enthusiastic, and positive volunteers that are ready to jump in and engage with our wonderful participants. This will become the best part of your week!

We need volunteers willing to dedicate two to four Thursdays each month, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, to work with our participants.

If you enjoy leading exercise, music, or crafts, we also need volunteers that can come in for 20-30 minutes on Thursdays to plan and lead an activity with our group.
