October 2017 Events and Support Groups at Duet

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

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. Duet offers a variety of caregiver support groups to offer attendees a chance to 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.

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.
