To become a volunteer:
"Volunteerism is the voice of the people put into action.
These actions shape and mould the present into a future of which we can be proud."

We want to thank all the dedicated volunteers who help to support the families, clients and services of the Alzheimer Society Peel. We are so fortunate to be working alongside such dedicated people from our community.

Volunteers assist the Day Program staff with various activities happening within the Centre, such as arts and crafts, discussion groups, exercise groups, music, gardening and more. Having a second language is an asset. Must be over the age of 18 and be able to commit to 1-3 hours per week. Let us know of any unique talents you have that you'd be interested in sharing (ex. piano, painting, etc.).
Strengthen existing skills or build new ones. This role includes administrative, computer, communication and organizational tasks. Spaces available in our Port Credit Head Office.
