ORGANIZATION: Alzheimer's Association, Rochester & Finger Lakes Region Chapter

Right now, million of Americans face the devastation of Alzheimer's. This disease is robbing us of our families, or futures, and our finances. At the Alzheimer's Association, our network of more than 75 chapters is working relentlessly to advance world-class research, ensure access to gold-standard care and support, and engage mission-driven volunteers who make it happen.

Support Group Facilitators create a safe, open environment where people share their feelings, thoughts, and experiences in a combined effort to better cope with and manage the shared problems of dementia. The goal of Alzheimer's Association support groups is to provide emotional, social, and/or educational support to group members. As facilitators, individuals may be responsible for general caregiver, adult children, spouse, gender-specific, or language-specific groups.
