Why volunteer at the Alzheimer Society of Montreal?
Volunteering means devoting a few hours of your free time to a worthy cause and sharing your expertise. Often, volunteering is a personal way to thank those who have helped improve the quality of life of a person with Alzheimer’s disease.
Volunteers gain a sense of well-being, self-worth, and satisfaction from the knowledge that they have directly contributed to an important project. With the help of volunteers, the Society can better serve people on the Island of Montreal who are touched by Alzheimer’s disease and related forms of dementia.
What qualities do we look for in our volunteers?
– Loyalty and sincerity.
– Trustworthiness and committment.
– Energy and optimism.
– Open-mindedness, respect, and listening skills.

Testimonial of a Volunteer !
“Volunteering is a form of therapy. The joy of helping others helps me too. I’m happy to wake up in the morning and am no longer haunted by the spectre of the disease. Volunteers are well treated and truly appreciated at the Society; there’s never any obligation, we do this gladly, and we always feel a sense of respect. The impacts of volunteering aren’t always obvious, but they’re real: for the Society’s clients and for us as well!” Gerrine Doucet
