We provide the most affordable respite care — guaranteed.

YouthCare is an in-home activity and memory care program that pairs trained undergraduate and/or graduate student volunteers and older adults with MCI, early-stage Alzheimer’s or dementia. Student volunteers go into the homes of family caregivers and follow a set curriculum designed by the UCLA Longevity Center that provides patients with cognitive stimulating activities and companionship for 3 to 6 hours per week.

This helps to improve the quality of life for the senior by keeping them engaged, channeling their energy in a positive way and uplifting their mood. The program also helps the family caregiver by providing them with temporary support in taking care of their loved one.

YouthCare is currently a grant-funded program and the services are FREE for qualified participants in Los Angeles County.
