About

We are looking for a Spanish speaking volunteer to serve as a facilitator or co-facilitator for a Caregiver Support Group in South Orange County. As this will be a new group, we can work with our Volunteer Facilitator to find a day of the week and time that fits into their schedule. The group will meet once a month for 1 - 1 1/2 hours. This Support Group will be for family caregivers or friends of individuals with dementia. This is a place where people can share their feelings and experiences and hear from others in similar situtations. The Support Group offers emotional support, resources for problem solving and educational information. Volunteer Support Group Facilitators are a vital part of Alzheimer’s Orange County’s (AOC’s) direct services and support for families impacted by dementia. AOC Support Groups provide participants with the opportunity to gain new coping skills, validate fears and frustrations, learn problem solving tools, and share feelings in a confidential, supportive environment.

An interview, training (provided by AOC), background check, and freedom from potential conflicts of interest are required. Interested candidates are asked for a minimum one year commitment consistently facilitating 1 group meeting a month.
