Ways to Volunteer

Walk to End Alzheimer's
Come walk with us! Alzheimer's Association 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.

All topics are related to Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias as well as the information that affected individuals and families need.

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.
