About

The Area Agency on Aging is seeking volunteers to help as coaches for the Community Stress Busting Program for Caregivers who are providing care to a loved one with Alzheimer's or a related dementia.

Caregivers are under enormous stress and the Stress Busting Program helps to teach the Caregivers stress reducing techniques. Past participants of the program said it has been a life savor and it helps them to take care of themselves and to provide improved care.

The Course is a nine(9) week course, which meets weekly for two (2) hour sessions, and is specifically designed to help the caregiver.

The Area Agency on Aging provides the volunteer coaches with the training they need to help facilitate the classes.

If you would like to help, we look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

Jennifer Scott
