The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Alzheimer's Association offers support groups for family caregivers, as well as specialized groups (e.g., early stage group, frontal temporal lobe dementia caregiver group). Support Group Facilitators lead or co-lead a support group for family members and caregivers seeking assistance, emotional support and information on all topics related to Alzheimer’s disease: care giving from diagnosis through the continuum of care, legal issues, research and advocacy information and opportunities.
Support groups are conducted at our office, as well as various locations in our service area (Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, El Dorado, Stanislaus, San Joaquin, Nevada, and Amador counties).
Experience with dementia as family caregiver, support group facilitation, or health care professional preferred.
