Community Representative - Monterey County

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Alzheimer's Association, Northern CA and Northern NV

  • 1 person is interested

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.

These volunteers serve as liaisons between the Association and local groups such as neighborhoods, rural counties, business and civic organizations or faith communities. Community Representatives share information about Alzheimer's disease, free resources offered through the Alzheimer's Association, and the many ways to join our cause. We will train you so you are informed about who we are and the services we offer.

We will ask you to attend health fairs or other outreach opportunities and staff our information table. You will give out info and giveaway items and answer questions/refer people to the helpline or chapter office. There will be about one opportunity per month and you can always say no if for any reason you can't make it. We also have some fun opportunities especially for Spanish speaking volunteers!

Mission Statement

The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Our mission: 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, A world without Alzheimer's disease.

Description

We provide programs and support services for patients, families, caregivers, and others in the San Francisco Bay Area affected by Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. Outside the federal government, the Alzheimer's Association is the largest research funder in the country and offers advocacy opportunities to make public policy change.

At the Alzheimer's Association, diversity and inclusion are vital to our mission. The Association leads strategic initiatives to support diversity and a culture of inclusivity.
