At Alzheimer's San Diego, we're lucky to be supported by an amazing group of volunteers. In 2017 alone, our 330 volunteers contributed more than 11,500 hours – valued at $327,290! In honor of National Volunteer Week, which runs April 15-21, we wanted to share some of their stories.
San Diego’s fight to end Alzheimer’s disease got a big boost on April 20th, amid signs that the deadly illness and other forms of dementia are taking an escalating toll on the region.
Alzheimer’s San Diego recently held a special workshop, Preparing for the Late Stage, led by Rebecca De Campos, MSW. Her goal was to provide a general idea of what to expect in this final stage, explore care options and to empower care partners to find new ways to connect with their loved ones.
