Duet: Partners In Health & Aging, a Phoenix area nonprofit, is launching its “Finding Meaning and Hope” video discussion series, produced by Duet in partnership with Pauline Boss, PhD, thanks to a grant from Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust. “Finding Meaning and Hope” is a free video and discussion series for family caregivers led by trained volunteers. This spring, a variety of 10-week “Finding Meaning and Hope” video and discussion groups for family caregivers are debuting in the Phoenix metro area and Tucson.
“The power of the video series is that, each week, through a 20-minute video, Dr. Boss gives caregivers an understanding of their ambiguous loss journey and teaches them the techniques which are crucial to reducing their stress, reclaiming hope and improving their health and well-being,” said Ann Wheat, caregiver services director for Duet. “These groups are all led by trained volunteers and are free-of-charge to the caregivers who attend them. We hope to change lives through this new and exciting initiative.”

Duet has trained volunteer facilitators for the “Finding Meaning and Hope” video and discussion series who need locations to host the groups, Wheat explained. “If a local faith community, community center or other organization would be willing to host a discussion group that would greatly help our effort.”
