Opening Spring 2024

Welcoming families navigating Alzheimer’s and other dementias

Welcome to Anchor Place

Anchor Place is a community-supported ministry of St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church for people living with dementia and their carepartners. Our mission is to provide social, emotional, and spiritual support for older adults living with memory loss and other cognitive impairments, ease the challenges of caregiving, and address the epidemic of loneliness through innovative, caring programming.

Anchor Place invites volunteers of all ages to help us meet the increasing needs of adults living with dementia and their carepartners. Our volunteers should have a heart for supporting people living with dementia in ways that affirm their dignity, elevate their remaining capacities, and share in mutually loving, respectful, and enjoyable relationships. 

We have many roles to fill, including:

  • respite day program companions, 
  • event coordinators, 
  • support group/resource coordinators,
  • administrative volunteers, and
  • people who have special talents, interests, skills, and ideas to share with us either on a regular basis or from time-to-time.

We greatly appreciate our volunteers and aim to make everyone on the Anchor Place team know they are a valued, essential part of the Anchor Place community. To ensure the safety of the Anchor Place community, volunteers serving directly with participants and certain other roles must complete 

  • a background check,
  • new volunteer training, and
  • ongoing interesting and informative educational opportunities so that our volunteers will always be learning best practices in creating a dementia-friendly community.
