Alzheimer's Association Heart of America Chapter

  • 1 person is interested

The Alzhemiers Assoc. is currently looking for diverse volunteers from our three diverse populations we serve. The African American, LGBT, and Latinx community. We are currently looking for Community Reps, Community Educators and Faith Outreach Reps.

Community Educators
Community Educators are volunteer public speakers who help Alzheimer's Association raise awareness, provide education and expand the reach of educational offerings in the community. These volunteers deliver presentations using prepared training materials on topics related to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Community Representatives
Community Representatives raise awareness of Alzheimer's Association programs, provide basic disease information, and link consumers to Alzheimer’s Association service by serving as liaisons between the Alzheimer's Association and local groups such as neighborhoods, rural counties, business and civic organizations or faith communities.

Faith Outreach Representatives
Faith Outreach Representatives serve as liaisons between the Alzheimer's Association and local faith groups and congregations by sharing information about Alzheimer’s disease, free resources offered through the Alzheimer’s Association, and the many ways to join our cause at local community and education events.

Mission Statement

To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's.

Description

The Alzheimer’s Association was founded by individuals like you who saw the need for an organization to unite caregivers, provide support to those facing Alzheimer’s and advance research. More than 30 years later, the Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.

Our volunteers have been, and continue to be, critical to expanding our reach across communities nationwide to provide care and support to those impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. By working together, we are moving closer to our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
