Together for Fun/Ensemble Pour le Plaisir is seeking French facilitators

Together for fun

Together for Fun is designed for caregivers and their loved one who has a mild to moderate cognitive impairment to share pleasant moments together by participating in simple, yet enjoyable recreational activities guided by trained facilitators. There is also a separate component of the program directed at caregivers which is aimed at improving quality of life, presenting resources for self-empowerment, and sharing useful information about other services and supports.

This program has already been successfully implemented in Quebec through the Alzheimer Society social workers in health services environment. It has also been adapted for a recreation setting and successfully piloted at a community centre in Trois-Riveres, Quebec. Recently, the Alzheimer Society has also piloted a virtual implementation and received positive feedback. Key to the success of the program is the facilitation by non-professionals who have received implementation training and coaching on working with people with cognitive impairment.

Currently we are seeking French speaking community members and community organizations to be trained as facilitators to deliver Together for Fun/Ensemble Pour le Plaisir to people living with cognitive impairment and their caregivers living in their community. The training and program are entirely virtual using video communication technologies. The program is 6 weeks in length, with each weekly session lasting a few hours. In total, facilitators should be available to commit 4-5 hours/week for 12 weeks (this includes training, preparation, and program delivery). An honorarium is provided to all facilitators who complete the training and deliver the program.
