If you have ever volunteered for the Alzheimer Society of Grey-Bruce please consider this your personal invitation,” said Jennifer Isber-Legge, Volunteer Coordinator.

Hundreds of people each year give thousands of hours to support our local Society,” she said. “Once a year we invite our volunteers to come together so we can celebrate their contributions to the work we do.”

The Alzheimer Society of Grey-Brice provides information, education, support, and counselling services to individuals with dementia, to their families, and their partners in care.

Volunteers support these services in so many ways,” Isber-Legge said. “We have volunteers who help fundraise, who help with programs and services, who support our office staff. The value of their contributions is in the hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.”
