Lauren volunteers to learn new skills

Why do I volunteer?

I took on this volunteer position to learn and expand my skills. This position allows me to do that and make a difference in the lives of people with dementia and their caregivers.  It’s great to know my work has a purpose.

What is my background?

I am employed with an adult day program for people with dementia. I have also volunteered with the Alzheimer Society in other cities, such as with their Volunteer Companion Program when I was an undergraduate student. I enjoy reading new research studies and advancements on dementia.

What is my impact?

I began volunteering with the Alzheimer Society of Ontario working on a housing proposal with their Public Policy department. This opportunity allows me to be a part of important provincial initiatives, which will help people for many years to come.

Why should you volunteer?

The Alzheimer Society of Ontario has supported me immensely in my effort to support others. I believe in their humanistic philosophy and their work has a big impact. I encourage anyone who believes they have something to contribute to get in touch and see how they can help.
