Duet: Partners In Health and Aging August Support Groups and Events

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

This August, Duet offers an ongoing variety of support groups for family caregivers alongside a volunteer orientation and support groups for grandparents raising grandchildren.

FAMILY CAREGIVERS (GENERAL) SUPPORT GROUPS

Support groups give people an opportunity to share openly about their caregiving experiences in a confidential and understanding setting with others who are in similar situations. Group attendees can ask questions and get answers from people who have been there and are able to provide support. Group attendees also are given the opportunity to learn creative problem-solving techniques and obtain care-related ideas. If you are interested in attending a group, please call (602) 274-5022 before your first meeting.

VOLUNTEER

Looking for a way to help your neighbors? Duet, a nonprofit, interfaith organization that promotes health and well-being through a broad range of services, is looking for volunteers.

The organization matches isolated, homebound adults with local, compassionate volunteers who help them with services such as grocery shopping, drive them to medical appointments, minor home repairs and even provide friendly visits. Volunteers can choose when and where they’d like to serve. It’s flexible and fun! To attend the orientation, please RSVP to volunteer@dueta​z.org. Volunteers need to bring a driver’s license and the phone numbers of two personal references to the orientation. For more information, call 602-274-5022.
