In person Support Group Facilitator - Monterey County

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Alzheimer's Association, Northern CA and Northern NV

Support Group Facilitators create a safe, open environment where people share their feelings, thoughts and experience in a combined effort to better cope with and manage the shared problems of dementia. The goal of support groups is to provide emotional, social and/or educational support to group members.

Facilitators lead monthly meetings for family caregivers, adult children, spouses, or people living with dementia in the community. The groups are established in collaboration with the Alzheimer's Association staff. We currently have virtual support groups and are looking to start in person support groups. We will provide training and support to you if you would like to become a support group facilitator.
