The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Alzheimer's Association provides the foremost education, resources, and support families need to effectively cope with a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease.
Clinical engagement is the backbone for the Alzheimer's Association and one of the highest strategic priorities we have. This is because clinical providers are on the forefront of connecting families with dementia to the help they need from the Association. Without the clinical provider facilitating this connection, most families will not receive the help they need and eventually encounter a lot of challenges.
The clinical engagement program educates and provides awareness to clinical providers about the available resources so the providers know where to connect the families they treat for help. Clinical Engagement volunteers play a priceless role within the program by increasing this knowledge and awareness of the Alzheimer's Association among clinical providers in their communities.
The goal? Inform healthcare professionals about the Association resources and build a mutually beneficial relationship so that families get the support they need quickly.
