The Alzheimer's Association offers a 24/7 helpline (800-272-3900) to those in need of Alzheimer's resources and information. All of these calls are routed to our national office in Chicago; if the caller is in our service area, they are forwarded to our office, where staff and volunteers continue the conversation to ensure the caller has the information they need.
Helpline Volunteers take phone calls from families seeking support, encouragement, hope, and guidance through the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Other responsibilities include assembling information packets for Helpline callers and updating the database of Helpline callers.
Previous helpline experience preferred, but not required.
