PACIFIC COUNTY — 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 South Bend and Raymond.
“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,” the association said in a press release. “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, educators, clergy, counselors, and former family caregivers. Commitment of at least one year is required
