At the Alzheimer Society of Durham Region, our volunteers are important to us. Volunteers are at the heart of what we do, and the programs and services we offer would not be possible without their dedication and support.

Join our team of dedicated volunteers who support and enrich the lives of persons living with dementia and care partners, far beyond what we can accomplish alone. At the Alzheimer Society of Durham Region, volunteers play a vital role in our community education programs, active living programs, family support groups and so much more.   

Given the restrictions related to COVID-19, most of our programs are now available by phone and online. Planning is in place to return to face to face interactions when safe to do so. There will be health and safety training available for those volunteers who will be involved in face to face programs/services. To ensure the safety of our clients and staff, we will continue to monitor and align with the preventive measures encouraged by Public Health, the Ministry and the Alzheimer Society of Ontario.
