Alzheimer’s Insights: volunteers move forward – Orange Leader

The Alzheimer’s Association relies on dedicated volunteers to realize our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s and to extend the reach of our programs to all communities. We are looking for committed and passionate volunteers to educate the public, lead support groups and provide social engagement to people with early stage Alzheimer’s disease.

As the Covid pandemic continues, our need for volunteers remains significant as our programs continue online.

The Alzheimer’s Association Program Volunteer Community is a dedicated resource for our volunteers to learn, interact with each other across the country and expand the reach of our programs in their local communities. New users can inquire about and apply for volunteer opportunities near them.

Join the fight against Alzheimer’s disease by becoming a volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Association. From planning an event to organizing a support group to administrative support, there are many ways to get involved.
