Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Alzheimer's Association Western Carolina

End Alz
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.

Alzheimer's Association Community Representatives are community engagers that raise awareness of Alzheimer's Association programs, provide basic disease information, and link consumers to Alzheimer’s Association services. Community Representatives represent the Association in the community at outreach events, such as health fairs, third-party fundraising events, and other outreach opportunities. They serve as liaisons between the Alzheimer's Association and local groups such as neighborhoods, rural counties, business and civic organizations or faith communities.
