Support Group Facilitators

To better support caregivers across the province, we offer Caregiver Support Groups in many communities. We rely on volunteer facilitators in these communities who plan and coordinate these support groups with our help. As a Support Group Facilitator you will:

Oversee and guide support group meetings at a time and place agreed upon by group members and make all other necessary meeting preparations

Create and maintain an open, safe and supportive group culture

Provide group members with information about dementia and its progression, caregiving, increasing personal resiliency, health system navigation and community resources

Participate in ongoing education and training provided by the ASOS

Much more!

Time Commitment: Support Groups meet once monthly on an ongoing basis. Additional time required organizing and publicizing meetings, completing reports and participation in education and training will vary. A yearly commitment to attend a facilitators training session is expected.

If you're interested in providing caregivers and family with the opportunity to socialize and find support in their community, learn more or contact Alice Germann by email at agermann@alzheimer.sk.ca or call 306-370-7046

Poster Distribution Volunteers

We are looking for people to distribute posters for us in their communities for the many events that the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan puts on each year. You can put up as many or as few as you would like – there’s no magic number.  We can mail you the posters or you can pick them up at your local Resource Centre.  We would greatly appreciate your help in getting the word out to the public about our events!

For more information or inquiries regarding volunteer opportunities, contact Marni Hatcher by email at mhatcher@alzheimer.sk.ca or phone 306-949-4141.
