What does it mean to become a Peer Facilitator, a “HOPE REPRESENTATIVE?”
Peer Facilitators are unique among all other providers of health care because:
- They possess the “lived experience”.
- They have, openly and without shame, begun their journey to heal.
- They model an openness that encourages others to share their journeys.
- They help participants to move forward from the feelings of loss and longing, allowing them to go on living without their loved one, while holding the memory of that person in their hearts.
Examples of organizations who have benefited from Peer Facilitator Training include:
- Assisted Living Facilities
- Grief Support Groups
- Clergy/Church Leaders
- Funeral Homes/Funeral Directors
- Senior Centers
