Respite Care Volunteers
The Alzheimer’s Association recruits and trains respite volunteers. After completing training, each volunteer is carefully matched with a Caregiving family. The volunteer spends 2-4 hours with the person with Alzheimer’s or related dementia each week, while the caregiver takes a break. Caregivers tell us it means the world to them to know that someone cares enough to help. Respite volunteers tell us this is one of the most meaningful things they’ve ever done.
If you are interested in learning more about becoming a respite volunteer, please call -- 1.800.272.3900.
