Volunteer With Us

Thank you for your interest in getting involved with the Alzheimer’s Project, Inc.

Our organization exists to provide comfort, support, and assistance to persons with memory disorders and their caregivers, and we offer our services free of charge. We are a non-profit organization funded by grants and private donations, and civic engagement are an integral part of everything we do! We have several upcoming events and volunteer opportunities. All volunteers, except event volunteers, are asked to make a 6-month commitment.

The Volunteer Training is held monthly. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Megan Bakan at Megan@alzheimersproject.org or 850-386-2778

Day Respite Volunteers

We need volunteers to assist guests with mild to moderate dementia in a group day care setting one day a week between 9:00 – 3:00 for a minimum of 2 hours a week. Volunteers are supervised by the Day Respite Coordinator. Activities include: singing, arts and crafts, puzzles, scrapbooking, seated exercises, bingo, and much more.

Day Respite Meals on Wheels Delivery Volunteers

Volunteers pick-up Meals-on-Wheels from Alzheimer’s Project at 11:00 AM and deliver meals to one of the Day Respite Sites, then return the empty boxes to Alzheimer’s Project. Time commitment is 1 hour a week.

Project Life Saver Volunteers

Project Life Saver is a GPS tracking device that individuals with dementia wear on their wrist or ankle so that they may be found if they wander from home. Clients need their PLS batteries changed once every other month. We need volunteers to go to client’s homes to change their batteries. The hours are flexible and may be done in the evenings and weekends. Each battery change, including drive time, takes approximately one hour. Volunteers are encouraged to serve more than one client.

AmeriCorps Volunteer

AmeriCorps offers military veterans and their families up to 10 hours of respite care a week. After you are trained by AmeriCorps, you provide support and companionship to clients, while giving caregivers a much needed break.

Contact us for more information on how you can become an AmeriCorps volunteer.

Office Volunteers

We need office volunteers to greet caregivers on the telephone and in person. Office volunteers are trained to provide information and referral to families. They also assist with writing thank you notes, answering phones, and maintaining email lists. The time commitment is 2 hours minimum one day a week.

Event Volunteers

We need volunteers to help us organize and manage events.
