Who are we?
Get to know us and join us!
The Harvard College Alzheimer’s Buddies program seeks to build meaningful connections between isolated dementia patients and undergraduate student “buddies."
Harvard College Alzheimer's Buddies is made up of a dedicated team of undergraduates responding to the profound isolation and social disengagement experienced by people in the intermediate-to-late-stages of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). We build meaningful emotional connections with dementia patients weekly one-on-one visits. We focus on what is still present in our buddies and improving the life that they have despite limitations.
