Making Engagement Meaningful through Organized Routine Interaction (MEMORI) Corps

MEMORI Corps Making Engagement Meaningful

The goal of the MEMORI Corps intervention research study is to find out if providing personalized, virtual companion-guided service by trained senior volunteers can help people living with dementia living at home and support their care partner(s).

 

Who may join?

We are recruiting two groups of participants: 1) People living with dementia and their care partner(s) who reside together in the same home in Baltimore City or Baltimore County; and 2) Healthy volunteers 55 years of age and older to serve as companions.
