ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION — SUPPORT GROUP FACILITATOR NEEDED

Support Group Facilitators create a safe, open environment where people share their feelings, thoughts and experiences in a combined effort to better cope with and manage the shared problems of dementia. The goal of Alzheimer’s Association support groups is to provide emotional, social and/or educational support to group members. As facilitators, individuals may be responsible for general caregiver, adult children, spouse, gender-specific or language-specific groups. Support Group Facilitators commit to a 1-year term delivering a monthly group. Training includes the following: application submission, background check and signature of confidentiality/conflict of interest forms, viewing four modules (online) that are approximately one hour each, and attending a 1-2 hour role specific facilitator training (which can also be completed online). If you are interested in becoming an Alzheimer’s Association Support Group Facilitator, or would like more information, please contact Reilly Huelsmann, program manager, Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Indiana Chapter at 317-587-2207 or by e-mail at rhuelsmann@alz.org.

YOUR COMMUNITY

NEEDS YOU!

Volunteers make a tremendous impact within their community! April is National Volunteer Month, so what are you waiting for? Volunteering not only connects you to others while increasing self-confidence, combating depression, and helping you to stay physically healthy, but studies have found that older adults who volunteer have a lower mortality rate than those who do not. Limited mobility? Don’t worry! There are plenty of volunteer activities that you can do right in the comfort of your own home. Volunteering can bring fun and fulfillment to your life. Generations would love to connect you to a volunteer project that is tailored to you. Interested in becoming a Generations’ volunteer? Contact Kim Fourman at 812-888-5879 or kfourman@vinu.edu.
