About

We are looking for a volunteer to serve as a substitute or co-facilitator for a Caregiver Support Group in Buena Park. This Support Group is for family caregivers or friends of individuals with dementia. It 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. This group meets at the Buena Park Senior Activity Center on the 3rd Friday of every month at 10:30 am. 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.
