Duet "10-Week Video Discussion Series Family Caregivers ~Finding Meaning & Hope"

Duet: Partners In Health & Aging offers a unique resource for family caregivers in its “Finding Meaning and Hope” video discussion series. Based on the groundbreaking book Loving Someone Who Has Dementia: How to Find Hope While Coping with Stress and Grief, by Pauline Boss, Ph.D., the video series will introduce participants to skills to help them stay strong, healthy and resilient. This free 10-week group discussion is designed for full-time, part-time, or long-distance family caregivers. Through partner organizations and trained volunteers, many video discussion series groups are starting up this fall. New this year, two discussion groups will be facilitated for Spanish speaking family caregivers in Phoenix. “Finding Meaning and Hope” video discussion series PHOENIX Thursdays, September 26 – December 5, 2019 from 1:30 – 3 p.m. Location: North Phoenix Baptist Church 5757 North Central, Avenue, Phoenix, 85012 RSVP: Jennifer Grand at (602)[masked] or email [masked] or Lorri Paetz at (602)[masked] Here is what attendees are saying about the series: “Dr. Boss’ theory on ambiguous loss gave a name to what I confront daily,” says Kim, a family caregiver. “Although I continue to grieve and miss what used to be a wonderful partnership with my wife, I am now much more able to identify new joys in our life together. This has been life changing for me and helped me be more present and positive when I am caring for my spouse.” ”I couldn’t believe how Dr. Boss was stating the thoughts and feelings I have, and sharing ways of dealing with them to help caregivers through this journey and come out the other side,” says Sandy, a family caregiver. “The power of the video series is that each week, through a 20-minute video, Dr. Boss gives family caregivers an understanding of their ambiguous loss journey and teaches them the techniques that are crucial to reducing their stress, reclaiming hope and improving their health and well-being,” says Ann Wheat, executive director of Duet. New “Finding Meaning and Hope” video discussion groups are frequently being added.
