Discussion Groups for Family Caregivers Available Across the Valley, Tucson in Fall 2018

Duet: Partners In Health & Aging has launched Finding Meaning and Hope, a free ten-part video discussion series based on the book Loving Someone Who Has Dementia: How to Find Hope While Coping With Stress and Grief, by Pauline Boss, PhD. The video series is the basis for structured weekly conversations led by trained Duet facilitators.

The series equips family caregivers with an understanding of ambiguous loss and the tools to lower stress and build resilience.

“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,” says Ann Wheat, director of family caregiver services.

This fall, several Finding Meaning and Hope video discussion groups are taking place. Each discussion group is free of charge to caregivers.
