Support a world without Alzheimer’s
by volunteering with the Alzheimer’s Association

Our volunteers are passionate, inspired and want to make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. By helping in our office a few hours a week, serving on an event planning committee, or in one of a number of other roles, you can impact the fight to end Alzheimer's disease.

Sign up online to Volunteer today!

As our volunteer program grows, new positions will become available, and we welcome your ideas. For more information, contact Bernadette Duffy, volunteer manager, at 234.284.2749 or bduffy@alz.org.


Volunteers opportunities (Updated: April 16, 2018)

  • Walk to End Alzheimer's Planning Committees – Participate on a planning committee for one of our Walk to End Alzheimer's in Akron, Medina, Stark, Mahoning Valley, Muskingum, Tuscarawas and Wayne. We are looking for dynamic individuals with a passion for our cause to join the planning committees. The Walks take place in September and October, with monthly meetings to plan event logistics. Responsibilities outside of the meetings can be tailored to your availability.
     
  • Caregiver Support Group Facilitator – To a caregiver, knowing you're not alone can be a great relief. In our chapter service area alone, nearly 250,000 people are providing unpaid care to someone living with Alzheimer's or another dementia. We offer over 30 support groups, led by trained volunteer co-facilitators, meeting monthly to encourage discussion, sharing, and provide a supportive atmosphere to lessen caregiver burden.

    We are currently seeking co-facilitators for the following areas: Brunswick, Minerva, Ravenna, Steubenville, Tallmadge, Wooster and Zanesville. (Find out more.)
     
  • Health Fairs & Tabling Volunteers – Attend health fairs as a representative of the Alzheimer's Association and cultivate community relationships and share information about the disease and services we offer.
     
  • Speakers Bureau – The Alzheimer's Association provides training and community education programs to families, caregivers, professionals, and general audiences on a variety of topics concerning Alzheimer's and brain health. We're seeking volunteers willing to help raise concern and awareness, and connect us with more families across our 17 county chapter service area. 
     
  • Program Support – The Alzheimer's Association 24/7 Helpline provides reliable information and support to all those who need assistance (800.272.3900.) We're seeking volunteers willing to be trained to help us connect more families with local resources and information by supporting the program staff in making contact with families, outreach, and administrative projects.
     
  • Alzheimer's Advocates – Conquering Alzheimer's is as much a matter of public policy as scientific discovery. Volunteer advocates are invited to engage public officials and policy makers at the local, state and federal level to drive critical Alzheimer's legislation and policy changes.
