Help Family Caregivers Find Meaning & Hope

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 and Hope Institute.

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

3) Complete a certification meeting with the Meaning and Hope Institute team.

“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.”
