Orientation and Training

Orientation

All new volunteers are asked to complete online Orientation which will help them to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia. Volunteers can log onto the website at their convenience to participate in the interactive videos. 

All private and not-for-profit organizations in Ontario must ensure that their employees and all of their volunteers complete accessibility training in accordance with the Accessible Customer Service Standard under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability Act (AODA).

Every volunteer is asked to complete the “interactive training video that shares the fundamental principles of accessibility and gives the tools that they can use to interact with and support people with disabilities.”

The website links for both the dementia courses and the AODA courses will be provided at the time of the interview.

Training

Volunteers can expect to receive initial and ongoing training in their chosen role so that they are supported in the work that they do. The training will be specific to the position which the volunteer holds and to the individual needs of the volunteer.
