Events for October and November

Finding Meaning and Hope
Join a group of fellow family caregivers to discuss how to regain hope and build resilience when dealing with the complexities of ongoing loss associated with caring for someone with Alzheimer's and other dementias.  In Duet's Finding Meaning and Hope series, you will learn skills to help you stay strong, healthy, resilient, and positive as you navigate your caregiving journey with healing and hope.  This 10-week discussion series features videos 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, a leading expert on caregiver grief.  It is built on solid research and years of practical experience, and it offers real help in dealing with the challenges, losses, and rewards of being a family caregiver of someone who is, or is becoming, psychologically absent.

Time:  10 - 11:30 am
