The Alzheimer’s Association is currently recruiting local volunteers to facilitate Family Caregiver Support Groups in Carnation. These support groups provide a consistent and caring place for caregivers to learn, share, and gain emotional support from others who are also on a unique journey of providing care to a person with memory loss.

A commitment of at lease one year is required. Volunteers will receive training, ongoing support, resources, and continuing education opportunities.

Those who are often best qualified as support group facilitators include working or retired social workers, nurses and other healthcare professionals, educators, clergy, counselors, and former family caregivers.

To learn more, call Linda Whiteside, Director of Community Support, at (800) 848-7097 or (206) 529-3875, or send email to lwhitesi@alzwa.org.
