About

We are looking for caring volunteers that have strong interpersonal skills to serve as a facilitator or co-facilitator for Caregiver Support Group in Laguna Niguel. Our Support Groups are 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 situations. This Support Group will meet once a month for approximately 1 hour, the day and time of this group has not been finalized and will include consideration for the facilitator's availability. Volunteers will receive training and will shadow a Support Group Facilitator before leading a group. 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, with flexibility for illnesses and vacations.
