Dementia Support Group Facilitators Toolkit Project
This toolkit, developed by the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center, is designed for dementia support group facilitators who want to learn and grow in their practice. The Toolkit Project was developed based on insights gained from a dementia support group for adults with younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. The toolkit includes information about support group facilitator skills, common themes expressed by people living with dementia and their family members, topics for encouraging discussions, and resources to share with support group members. Resources also cover how dementia support group facilitators can stay connected with their members and encourage members to stay connected with each other during the COVID-19 pandemic.
