Bay Area Volunteer Shares Experience and Caregiving Insights

I decided to volunteer after I did my first Walk to End Alzheimer’s last October. I was so uplifted. I felt such a sense of camaraderie. These were people who shared my experiences and had a common goal. I absolutely wanted to be more involved with these people and this cause. I signed up to volunteer right after the walk! I have not regretted one single moment – I have had the opportunity to attend a regional training event and the various committee meetings and I have never felt so welcome. The staff at the Alzheimer’s Association and the other volunteers have been amazing. I first learned about the Walk through Live Oak. I was on their team last year and this year I have formed a team at work – Team Synopsys – in hopes of garnering even more donations and exposure for the big event.
