Volunteer Needs

African American Outreach Volunteers Needed! African-Americans are at greater risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and are less likely to have a diagnosis of their condition, resulting in less time for treatment and planning. Help us reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and reverse the growing trend of Alzheimer’s disease among African-Americans – become an African American Outreach Volunteer!

Support Group Facilitator Training

The Alzheimer's Association is looking for confident, self motivated individuals to facilitate our support groups. Facilitators volunteer to lead or co-lead support groups, guiding group interaction focused on acceptance, active listening, empathy and assistance with problem solving. Facilitators are required to complete the Greater Michigan Chapter volunteer application, undergo a background check and complete a facilitator training course.

Facilitator training courses, conducted by Alzheimer's Association staff, focus on the fundamentals of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, group dynamics, unique challenges and concerns that arise in dementia specific support groups, group management and promotion, and group facilitator roles and responsibilities, as well as an overview of the programs and services of the Alzheimer's Association.  

Next Training in Metro Detroit:
Thursday, September 7, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Alzheimer's Association - Greater Michigan Chapter (25200 Telegraph Rd., Suite 100)
Cost $40 per person and a light lunch is provided
RSVP to Treena Horton at 248.996.1058 or thorton@alz.org
