We are mindful of the importance of social distancing and the role we play in our communities to protect the health of our clients, employees and their families during COVID-19. We have therefore suspended the Society's in-person activities and volunteer engagement program for the next while - this includes Minds in Motion®, support groups and other education.

In the meantime, if you would like to complete a volunteer application, we will follow up when the programs re-opens. We look forward to discussing next steps with you as soon as we return to business as usual!

What is an office hero?

Office Heroes are part of the backbone of our organization. Office Heroes help us get information and resources out to the community, personally thank our donors and supporters, and make sure that our files and databases are up-to-date. This work expands our reach and maintains a high quality of service to the over 70,000 British Columbians affected by dementia.

Office Hero assignments include:

  • Mail-outs of information and resources
  • Collating resource materials for education workshops
  • Organizing fundraising kits for events
  • Thanking donors with handwritten notes and envelopes
  • Ensuring our databases have correct and up-to-date contact information for our many supporters, clients and volunteers.
