Description

Helpline Volunteer Specialists Wanted!
Are you interested in helping families in need? Become a Helpline volunteer today! Our thoroughly-trained volunteers help people with dementia and their families find much needed community resources. Living with dementia can be challenging, but the information and consultation our Helpline volunteers provide can make a world of difference.

Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: As a Helpline volunteer, you will be responding to calls from families and individuals seeking help and support for the challenges that Alzheimer’s and other dementias bring. Though not a requirement, most of our volunteers were prior caregivers and can relate to the struggles and frustrations that caregiving can bring.
 

Requirements:

  • A background check is required for all Helpline volunteers as they work - via phone - directly with families impacted by Alzheimer's and related dementias.
  • Dress code - business casual, no flip flops and no torn or ripped clothing.

Time Commitment:
Shifts are available Monday - Friday: 9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

 

Benefits:
Training is provided to help volunteers understand how best to respond to and interact with the individuals who call our Helpline. Most of our volunteers were prior caregivers, too, so providing much needed support for other families who are experiencing similar daily caregiving challenges is a rewarding experience. Building strong communication and computer skills are a bonus!

 

Alzheimer's Los Angeles provides free support and resources to local families affected by dementia, advocates for quality public care, and advances Alzheimer’s research and awareness.
