You can make a significant difference to the lives of people affected by dementia in your local community, simply by giving up a few hours of your time.
Alzheimers NZ and local Alzheimers organisations value the exceptional contribution volunteers give. We recognise the importance of their unique role, their commitment in contributing their experience and skills to positively enhance the wellbeing of people living with dementia.
Volunteering for your local Alzheimers organisation
Our local Alzheimers organisations offer many support services to those living with dementia, and your voluntary time and skills could contribute in the following ways:
- Assisting with activity groups/outings
- Collating papers and mailings
- Office support
- Data entry
- Gardening/Site maintenance
- Special events
- Handyman jobs
- Annual appeal collection
- Respite care - people who give full-time carers a break, people who kindly collect during our appeals and people who help out in our offices.
If you would like to become a volunteer for your local Alzheimers organisation please call 0800 004 001.
There are also a number of ways to donate to your local Alzheimers organisation and support the services provided in your local area.
