No Two Are Alike--Thankfully

Among Friends is day respite program for individuals with mild to moderate memory loss, a time for participants to express their creativity, chat, have lunch, and find joy with new friends.

Our unique program provides a safe environment in which every participant is matched with a volunteer. No one is ever left alone or unsupervised--and they are never bored!

Whether we are coloring eggs, planting or arranging flowers, playing cards, conditioning horse tackle, sorting and admiring agates, singing, or building birdhouses, we will find that activity bound to make our participants stimulating and happy. If it isn't on our to-do list for that day, we will create a space and time for it, or we will make sure to include it next time.

Ours is not a one-size-fits-all program because every person brings his or her individual tastes and preferences and abilities. Those differences make the world--and Among Friends--such a wonderful place. We meet each participant where they are and provide them with the best experience possible in the hours they spend with us. In the process, participants gain a sense of independence, greater self-esteem, less loneliness, and more happiness.

Families can be assured that their loved ones are safe and well looked after while they have a few hours to catch up on errands, have a coffee with friends, or just find some quiet time for themselves.

Among Friends meets on Tuesdays in River Falls from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Call us at (715) 293-2561 to determine if our program is right for your family member.

I volunteer for Among Friends. It’s a day of joyful activities with people who are finding themselves in situations where they can just have a fun day.
