From an Alzheimer's Association news release. May 21, 2018.
Make a difference in the life of a family caregiver!
The Alzheimer’s Association is currently recruiting local volunteers to facilitate a Younger-Onset Family Caregiver Support Group in Lynnwood.
Younger-Onset Family Caregiver 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 younger-onset memory loss, diagnosed by age 65 or younger.
Our chapter-trained volunteers receive excellent training, ongoing support, resources, and continuing education opportunities.
Individuals who are often best qualified as younger-onset support group facilitators include: working or retired social workers, nurse and other healthcare professionals, educators, clergy, counselors, and former family caregivers.
Commitment of at least one year is required
