Congratulations to our newest group of Senior Peer Counselor graduates!
Eight dedicated folks committed to a 9 week training program that covers basic counseling skills, self-awareness, substance abuse, understanding depression, building effective communication, sexuality, family systems, and county resources. Very shortly, these amazing volunteers will be matched with an older adult of a similar background and provide guidance with issues such as health concerns, mobility issues, transitions and life changes, care provider questions, and grief.
