The Desert Southwest Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association impacts thousands of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and their families. Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of the aging process. It is a degenerative, incurable disease of the brain. The impact on individuals, families and our health care system makes this one of our greatest medical, social and fiscal challenges. Today, there are an estimated 120,000 individuals from all socio-economic, ethnic and racial groups afflicted with Alzheimer’s in Arizona and Southern Nevada, and an additional 350,000 family care partners impacted on a daily basis. Increasing age is the greatest risk factor, as one in nine individuals age 65+ and one in three of those age 85+ are affected.

Soreo volunteers offer support, companionship and practical, compassionate help. Some interact directly with patients and families. Others prefer to work behind the scenes in the office setting. As a volunteer, you help determine which tasks you’re best suited to perform. The roles of volunteers are typically divided into two major categories: those who are directly involved with the care of the dying person and their family and those who indirectly support the dying by providing services directly to the hospice.
