The training is free and open to anyone who is interested in becoming a volunteer support group facilitator for the Alzheimer’s Association. The Alzheimer’s Association provides all the resources for the training with coffee and snacks provided.  The first hour includes an educational program on what Alzheimer’s is, the different types of behaviors that patients can exhibit as well as effective ways to communicate with the patients. The second half of the training participants will discuss different dynamics of support groups as well as services that the Alzheimer’s Association provides free for the community and volunteer facilitators. The participants will explore different vignettes and experiences of actual West Tennesseans and how each caregiver handled the situation.
