Volunteer with Respite Care Atlanta

Club RCA – Professionally led, Volunteer driven

Volunteer with Respite Care Atlanta for our adult day programs assisting adults and seniors living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Club RCA is a professionally led, volunteer-driven respite program designed to support caregivers and their loved ones in a safe, caring and comfortable atmosphere in Buckhead, Atlanta.

Respite Care Atlanta is seeking volunteers of all ages for our 3-days a week adult day programs assisting adults living with mild-to-moderate dementia. Volunteers get to share their ideas and talents while helping to provide a safe and engaging environment for program participants.

Club RCA Volunteers first attend an Orientation and Training meeting where they learn about dementia care, Club RCA, and the ways in which they can serve. They then “shadow” a current volunteer for a real-time experience.

We offer monthly info sessions at Second-Ponce de Leon Baptist Church (Club RCA program location) to give prospective volunteers a closer look at the program, the volunteer roles and a chance to ask questions.

All of Respite Care Atlanta volunteers complete an application, background check, orientation, submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination and attend required training to serve our memebers. Bring your ideas and abilities to help us achieve our mission and more!
