Support Group Facilitator - Caregiver Support Groups
Caregiver Support Group Facilitators create a safe and open space for caregivers caring for people with dementia to share their concerns and solutions. When needed, Support Group facilitators offer information to support caregivers in their decision-making.
Facilitators are people with discretion, empathy, strong listening skills, and a belief in the capacity of peers to help one another.
As a support group facilitator you will receive thorough training in group facilitation and the dementia journey. We ask for a one year volunteer commitment to allow you to establish trusting relationships with group members over time.
Groups are held once a month with a time commitment of 3 to 6 hours per month.
We are currently seeking facilitators for our weekday evening Caregiver Support Groups in
- Port Coquitlam
- New Westminster
- Excellent interpersonal skills
- Willingness to learn
- Problem solving skills
- Personal maturity
- Healthy boundaries
- Experience with dementia, caregiving, and/or facilitating is an asset
“As a caregiver, it is very challenging to even know where to begin. The Alzheimer Society not only opened doors for me, it gave me a new lease on life. I am no longer a lonely traveler, but have connected with others with similar experiences and continue to learn on my journey.”
