Alzheimer Society Speakers’ Bureau
Invite the Alzheimer Society to deliver a presentation about dementia and the available Alzheimer programs in the community!
The Speakers’ Bureau is a volunteer-driven, public speaking program that targets a wide variety of audiences. Our goal is to let the community know that there is Help for Today and Hope for Tomorrow… and that no one needs to go on this journey alone.
Our dedicated volunteers will deliver presentations to the community in churches, retirement residences, multi-cultural associations, colleges and universities, government offices, etc.
The presentation will include:
- an overview of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias
- the difference between normal and abnormal memory loss
- 10 warning signs
- tips for maintaining a healthy brain
- a summary of the support and services available through the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County
Volunteers also manage booths across the region at senior wellness fairs, conferences, government agencies, etc. This provides an opportunity for participants to engage in discussions with our knowledgeable volunteers.
