The number of Ontarians with dementia is expected to increase by 40% in the next decade. The human costs and the costs to our health-care system will be enormous. We really could not do what we do to support people with dementia, and raise money to find a cure, without volunteers.

Volunteering Windsor

Volunteer Application


Volunteers are vital to Alzheimer Society of Windsor & Essex County (ASWE). Volunteers provide their time, enthusiasm, ideas, and skills to help ASWE to better serve our community through a variety of volunteer activities. Without volunteers, many programs and services offered by our organization simply would not exist.

ASWE strives to match persons interested in volunteering with volunteer positions suited to their interests, skills, abilities, and availability. Orientation and training are provided based on requirements of the volunteer positions. Long-term, short-term, event, and project-based volunteer positions are available.

Areas of volunteer involvement include:

  • Adult Day Program Assistant
  • Board of Directors
  • Committee Member (Fundraising)
  • Community Awareness Volunteer
  • Office Assistant
  • Special Events Helper


  • Helping others in need
  • Making the community a better place to live
  • Sharing your time and talents with others
  • Gaining experience or clarifying employment interests
  • Keeping active during retirement
  • Fulfilling 40-hour community service high school diploma requirement
  • Supporting the clients, programs, and services of ASWE
  • Wanting to “give back” after having been helped by ASWE
