Attention LGBTQ+ Dementia Family Caregivers: Duet is proud to announce a special virtual offering of the Finding Meaning and Hope discussion series, specifically for the LGBTQ+ community, that will begin on March 22, 2022.

Join a group of fellow LGBTQ+ family caregivers to discuss how to regain hope and build resilience when dealing with the complexities of ongoing loss associated with caring for someone with dementia. In the Finding Meaning and Hope series, you will learn skills that can help you stay strong, healthy, resilient, and positive as you navigate your caregiving journey.

This 10-week discussion series features videos 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., a leading expert on caregiver grief. Built on solid research and years of practical experience, it offers real help in dealing with the challenges, losses, and rewards of being a family caregiver of someone who is, or is becoming, psychologically absent. You will learn skills that can help you stay strong, healthy, resilient, and positive as you navigate your caregiving journey.

Mental Health for LGBTQ+ Aging Adults
