Volunteer Positions

Alzheimer’s Services needs volunteer assistance in many ways. Our volunteer force ranges in age from children and teens to persons in their eighties.  Some are able to provide volunteer services regularly on a weekly or monthly basis, others assist as needed/when available.  Some are able to help only once a year.  No matter how often someone is able to volunteer, all are needed and greatly appreciated.

Volunteer opportunities vary greatly, and training is provided for each position.  In some cases training is provided by the Alzheimer’s Services staff; in other cases new volunteers are trained by experienced volunteers.

Volunteer opportunities with current openings are listed below.  Links to job descriptions are provided.  The job descriptions provided are general in nature.  Time commitments and responsibilities are negotiable.
