You can make a difference in the lives of those affected by Alzheimer's.

Care & Support Volunteers provide direct, hands-on assistance with those living with Alzheimer's and related dementia, caregivers, and the general public.

Do you have a heart for families dealing with Alzheimer’s disease? Are you a good listener? Do you want to make a difference in your community?

  • Experienced with dementia as a family member or healthcare professional preferred.
  • Have the ability to be empathetic and separate personal needs from group needs.
  • Have strong and effective listening and communication skills.
  • Able to redirect and facilitate discussion
  • Able to create and maintain an environment where participants’ thoughts and feelings are valued and members are treated with fairness, equity and respect.
