From a November 30,2018, Alzheimer's Association news release.
Make a difference in the life of a family caregiver!
The Alzheimer’s Association is currently recruiting local volunteers to facilitate Family Caregiver Support Groups in Monroe.
Family Caregiver Support Groups provide a consistent and caring place for caregivers to learn, share, and gain emotional support from others who are also on a unique journey of providing care to a person with memory loss.
Our Chapter trained volunteers receive excellent training, ongoing support, resources, and continuing education opportunities.
Individuals who are often best qualified as support group facilitators include:
- Working or retired social workers,
- Nurse and other healthcare professionals,
- Counselors, and
- Former family caregivers.
Commitment of at least one year is required.
