The Peer Caregiver Support Program
This program, funded through a grant of the La Crosse Coomunity Foundation is designed to connect “Volun-Peer Mentors” with caregivers of individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or other related dementia for caring support, socialization and knowledge of resources.
Volun-Peer Mentors have “Been there. Done that.” as former caregivers. They can provide encouragement, a listening ear, and may share a similar caregiving experience but recognize that everyone is different. Support can be provided by phone, in person or electronic communication.
If you are interested in becoming a Volun-Peer Mentor, providing support and encouragement to current caregivers or are a current caregiver and interested in being matched with a Volun-Peer Mentor
