Thank you, volunteers!
From April 23 to 29, the Alzheimer Society of Timmins-Porcupine District celebrates our volunteers who stand amidst Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers during National Volunteer Week.
During National Volunteer Week, we recognize the tireless contributions of our volunteers. Your support is absolutely invaluable to our staff, and to families across our community who are living with a dementia diagnosis.

Dementia is a growing public health crisis that threatens to overwhelm families, communities and our health-care system. This disease takes more than just life; it takes memories and abilities first, leaving individuals entirely dependent on their caregivers. With over 250,000 Ontarians diagnosed and that total rising every year, we need to take action now.
At the Alzheimer’s Society, we are dedicated to providing Help for Today. Hope for Tomorrow… ®. But we can’t do this alone. We need volunteers of all ages and skills to help make a difference in the lives of people with dementia. Check out the links below to see how you can get involved.
