Help Family Caregivers Find Meaning & Hope: Become a Facilitator

| 7 Minute Read
Written by: Meaning & Hope Institute

Finding Meaning and Hope is a powerful program designed to support family caregivers of individuals with dementia and is based on the eye-opening book, Loving Someone Who Has Dementia: How to Find Hope While Coping with Stress and Grief, by Pauline Boss, PhD. Developed by Duet: Partners In Health & Aging in 2016, this 10-part discussion series is led by trained facilitators who help caregivers to navigate topics like ambiguous loss; stress, coping, and resiliency; and the psychological family in a way that connects to their own journeys. Watch the video trailer below to learn more about Finding Meaning and Hope.

Becoming a Facilitator

Whether you are a healthcare or social services professional, support group leader, caregiver advocate, book club facilitator, or a caregiver ready to support others, the Meaning & Hope Institute is here to provide you with the training and guidance needed to prepare you for your journey as a Finding Meaning and Hope facilitator.

There are three main steps to becoming a facilitator:

1) Schedule an informational call with the Meaning & Hope Institute.

2) Sign up and attend a half-day facilitator training.

3) Complete a certification meeting with a senior facilitator.

“We heard over and over again that the time spent in the group and what they learned was what got them through each week. I can say that most weeks it was just what I needed too, to keep giving and guiding.”
