Association seeks volunteers

The Alzheimer’s Association is currently looking for local volunteers to facilitate Family Caregiver Support Groups in Enumclaw.

These groups provide a place for caregivers to learn, share and gain support from others.

Those who are typically best qualified to be group facilitators are working or retired social workers, nurse and other healthcare professionals, educators, clergy, counselors and former family caregivers.

A commitment of at least a year is required.

If you’re interested contact Linda Whiteside, director of Community Support, at 206-529-3875 or
