We asked our volunteers to reflect on what volunteering means to them and the community they serve. Here is what they said:
"Minds in Motion is excellent, upbeat, friendly and helpful. I have witnessed participants improve their physical abilities and increase conversation with each other."
"The reward is being an important part of their day and bringing a smile to someone's face...you can't even express the warmth. I certainly get more out of volunteering than I give. It's a nice feeling knowing that you've made someone's day a litter brighter."
"Minds in Motion is about interacting in a social environment together, whether you're physically active or talking about your day. That's the most important thing, to feel like you're together as a team. You're on the dementia journey as a group, not individually."
"It's awesome seeing the participants progress throughout the weeks and share stories about their lived experience."
