Alzheimer's disease

Our volunteers are passionate, inspired and want to make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. Whether you can spare a few hours a week or make a more significant time commitment, please consider becoming an Alzheimer's Association volunteer.

Ways to Volunteer

Walk to End Alzheimer's
Come walk with us! Alzheimer's Association Walk is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. We need volunteers who can help plan, promote and work the day of the event. You can also form a walking team of family, friends or co-workers. Read more.

Community Educator Volunteer
Always wanted to become  community educator, but didn't know how? Now you can! Community educators conduct presentations on the basics of Alzheimer's Disease and Know the 10 Signs. All of our programs are free and open to the public. While the Basics and Know the 10 Signs are the hallmark of our presentations, we do offer more in depth programs and trainings on such topics as: Dementia Conversations, Understanding Behavior, Communication, and Healthy Living for your Brain and Body. All training and materials are provided through the Association. Community Educator applications can be found here. Contact Stacey Denham for more information at: 

Support Group Facilitator
Caregiver Support Group Facilitators help guide Alzheimer’s Association support groups, open gatherings of people with common problems, needs and interests who come together to share their feelings, thoughts and experiences in a combined effort to better cope with and manage the shared problems of dementia in a safe environment. The goal of the Alzheimer’s Association support groups is to provide emotional, social and/or educational support to group members. Support Group Facilitator applications can be found here. Contact Stacey Denham for more information at:

Become an Alzheimer’s Advocate
Help shape laws at the federal, state or local level by talking with legislators and educating them about Alzheimer’s related issues. Association advocates have successfully raised government funds for Alzheimer’s research and improved access to care and support services for people in their communities. Read more.

Become a Champion
Join the movement to dramatically increase awareness and concern about Alzheimer’s. We’re calling on 5 million Americans – one for every person living with the disease – to become a Champion and join the Alzheimer cause.
