About

We are looking for a passionate volunteer to provide family caregivers in Fullerton with support and education about dementia, compassion for the challenges of caregiving, and connection to AOC for additional support. Volunteer Support Group Facilitators are a vital part of Alzheimer’s Orange County’s (AOC’s) direct services and support for families impacted by dementia.
