Help Family Caregivers Find Meaning & Hope: Become a Facilitator
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.

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.”Finding Meaning and Hope Facilitator
