Finding Meaning and Hope is a 10-week facilitator led video discussion series that explores what it means to be a dementia family caregiver, provides much needed support for caregivers, and shares tools that caregivers can use to find meaning amidst the ambiguity of dementia and hope for what life can be. The program is based on the groundbreaking book, Loving Someone Who Has Dementia: How to Find Hope While Coping with Stress and Grief, by Pauline Boss, PhD and was developed by Duet: Partners In Health & Aging.

Whether you are a healthcare or social services professional, a community leader, 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 facilitator.
