Welcome, we are so glad you are visiting the volunteer portal for the Alzheimer Society Southwest Partners!
AlzSWP's Volunteer Engagement Program is a crucial part of our organization and allows us to meet the current and growing needs of our clients. Across our region, there are over 13,500 people with a diagnosis of dementia and an estimated 26,000 family members caring for them. Our volunteer program was created to expand our services within our community and enable our volunteers to give back in a way that is meaningful to them.
**Important for London-Middlesex New Applicants**
Please note, at this time due to an influx of applicants during September, the In-Home Recreation Program is the only opportunity we’re currently recruiting for in London as all other positions are full. We do still have various opportunities in Elgin and Oxford. Please read below about our In-home Recreation Program.
Volunteers in the In-Home Recreation program are matched 1:1 with a client and meet once/week in the client’s home for 2 hours. You will provide meaningful activities and be a regular social connection for our client's living with dementia, while allowing the care partners to have respite time. Volunteers in this role form long lasting and meaningful relationships with clients, and rave about the program! If working 1:1 and building a connection with someone is something that interests you, then please feel free to apply!
