Duet: Partners In Health & Aging recently launched its “Finding Meaning and Hope” video discussion series, in partnership with Pauline Boss, Ph.D. “Finding Meaning and Hope” is a free video and discussion series for family caregivers led by trained volunteers. On Friday, May 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Duet will host a free-of-charge training session to prepare local professionals and caregivers to facilitate the video discussion series. The training will take place at Church of the Beatitudes, 555 W. Glendale Avenue, in Phoenix


This video series is a structured, peer-led group discussion for caregivers experiencing ambiguous loss. 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., this video series occupies a unique place in the caregiving landscape. It equips caregivers with an understanding of ambiguous loss and the tools to lower stress, build resilience, and stay healthy. During the May 4 training session, volunteers will learn how to facilitate the video and discussion series to a group of caregivers in their community. 


The “Finding Meaning and Hope” video discussion series groups are offered at no cost to family caregivers. 


“This video discussion series really is a grass roots type initiative where, one discussion group at a time, we’re impacting caregivers in all corners of the Valley and beyond,” said Ann Wheat, director of family caregiver services. “We invite anyone who is passionate about helping others on their caregiving journeys to join us to become a video discussion series group facilitator.”
