When you volunteer with Alzheimer’s Buddies, you join an intergenerational response against the social isolation imposed by Alzheimer’s.


National Alzheimer’s Buddies (NAB) is a nonprofit built to empower you and your local chapter to lead the movement in your community. By pairing student volunteers 1-to-1 with dementia residents, an Alzheimer’s Buddies chapter not only offers volunteers the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the lives of Alzheimer’s residents and their families, but also to develop a stronger understanding of personal identity, build new social skills, make new friends, and spearhead impactful change.

NAB was certified as a president's volunteer service award during the Obama administration. When you reach a specific amount of volunteer hours, you will receive a personalized certificate, an official pin, and medallion or coin.
I would like to sign up for the Alzheimer's Buddies monthly newsletter sent to my email address.
At the end of the semester, volunteers write a one page family letter highlighting their experiences with their buddy throughout the semester. This letter is shared with the loved ones of your buddy. These letters provide key insights into the relationships built through Alzheimer’s Buddies, making them critically important to making educational, promotional, and other types of materials.
