How Can I Help?

There are two ways to support Alzheimer’s & Dementia Services of Northern Indiana in our efforts to provide families with the education, support, and information they need to face the challenges of a dementia diagnosis. One is to make a charitable contribution; the other is to volunteer your time.

Make a Charitable Contribution

Alzheimer’s & Dementia Services of Northern Indiana is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to:

  • Provide affected individuals, their families/friends, and caregivers with support, information, education, and referral services;
  • Educate the public, community groups, and others about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia;
  • Advocate for improved public policy for affected individuals, family members and other caregivers.

In order for us to carry out these objectives, we are thankful for donations, memorial gifts, and bequests that allow us to continue providing free programs and services in the eleven counties we’ve been serving since 1982.  All funds raised remain in our local communities to help families now.

If you would like to set up an ongoing/reoccurring donation, please contact Barb Dicken at 574-284-7145 or bdicken@realservices.org

Establish an Endowment or Trust

We will be happy to work with you to establish an endowment or to set up a trust through which Alzheimer’s Services is a beneficiary.

Volunteer Your Time

Alzheimer’s Services needs volunteer assistance in many ways.

Our volunteer force ranges in age from children and teens to persons in their eighties.  Some are able to provide volunteer services regularly on a weekly or monthly basis, others assist as needed/when available.  Some are able to help only once a year.  No matter how often someone is able to volunteer, all are needed and greatly appreciated.

Volunteer opportunities vary greatly, and training is provided for each position.  In some cases training is provided by the Alzheimer’s Services staff; in other cases new volunteers are trained by experienced volunteers.

Volunteer opportunities with current openings are listed below.  Links to job descriptions are provided.  The job descriptions provided are general in nature.  Time commitments and responsibilities are negotiable.
