The Alzheimer’s Association is currently recruiting local volunteers to facilitate Family Caregiver Support Groups in Kirkland and help make a difference in the life of a family caregiver.
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 chapter trains 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.
