The Alzheimer Society of Alberta & NWT is actively looking for Volunteer Care Partner Support Group Facilitators.
The Volunteer Facilitator will facilitate monthly support group sessions for care partners who have a family member living with Alzheimer Disease and other forms of dementia.
You will receive a comprehensive orientation to the Alzheimer Society, it’s services, as well as education on dementia and the issues faced by care partners and other family members.
The time commitment would be a minimum of facilitating one Alzheimer support group per month as well as mandatory attendance at the training.
You would play an integral role in supporting people in your community who support those living with dementia.
If you have some time either in the day time or evening and would like to consider volunteering, please call Charlene @780-488-2266 for more information.
I’ve seen these Alzheimer support meetings in action and know first hand the difference they make in the lives of families. This is a great organization to support with your time on this ‘Giving Tuesday’.
