Looking to Facilitate a Support Group?
The Oregon Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association is looking for facilitators and co-facilitators of regularly monthly or bi-monthly Caregiver Support Group Meetings. We are also looking to establish a list of “substitute” facilitators/co-facilitators willing to fill-in where and when needed. If you have professional or personal knowledge about Alzheimer’s or if you have been a caregiver for a loved one with Alzheimer’s, you are uniquely qualified to help others by facilitating or co-facilitating a Caregiver Support Group.
If you’re interested, please contact Pamela Mottola at the Oregon Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association: (503) 416-0203 or email@example.com for more information or a volunteer packet.
