About

The role of the facilitator is to create a supportive setting where group members connect with each other and benefit from the shared wisdom and experience of living with Alzheimer's Disease. Assist with guiding participation in caregiver support groups or early-stage support for people with the diagnosis and/or their caregiver. Facilitators must have strong listening skills and be effective communicators. Experience with dementia as a family member or health care professional is preferred. Ability to be empathetic, create and maintain a safe environment and redirect and facilitate discussions is also required. Please be willing to commit to one-year of volunteering.
