Volunteers are important to the Alzheimer Society of Simcoe County. Whether you have just a few hours to give or you want to get involved on a regular basis, there are a number of ways you can help.

We will work with you to determine a volunteer opportunity that is best suited to you, your skills and your goals. We provide training and ongoing support for all volunteer positions. New volunteers receive a New Volunteer Information Package which contains: Volunteers Make a Difference, Volunteer Orientation Manual, Brochures about Alzheimer’s disease and a copy of the most recent Annual Report of the Alzheimer Society of Simcoe County.

Our application process involves:

  • Submitting an application,
  • Participating in an interview,
  • Submitting two (2) references. A reference may NOT be a family member.
  • Volunteer positions in which volunteers work directly with clients, require a Vulnerable Persons Check. You will be advised if a Vulnerable Persons Check is required.  
  • Participating in an Orientation Session.
