Alzheimer’s group seeks facilitator

The Alzheimer’s Association is looking for a volunteer facilitator to co-lead one of its monthly family caregiver support groups based in Plymouth.

The facilitator, paired with a co-facilitator, will be responsible for leading the group discussion, building group sharing by listening to the concerns of others, articulating feelings, and encouraging other members to do the same.

The volunteer facilitator must possess compassion for individuals with dementia and their families, practice good listening skills, be nonjudgmental, and have excellent verbal communication skills. They must also have the ability to use humor while showing genuine care and compassion for the caregiver. Training will be provided by the Alzheimer’s Association. The time commitment for a volunteer facilitator would average about three hours each month.

A support group is designed to provide an open forum for caregivers or family members to voice their concerns and ask questions about Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. In addition to the emotional, educational and social support provided, the regularly scheduled meetings also allow participants to develop methods and skills to solve problems.
