Facilitator Val Talks Stronger Participation in Online Digital Support Programs & the Benefits of a Peer Facilitator

Facilitator Val, having gone through cancer as a child and experiencing first hand what caregiving looks like, shares how that experience, along with the caregiving she has given to her family over the years, has helped her relate better as a peer to participants in the Canary Health Building Better Caregivers program, than if she didn’t have that experience.

When asked if participants have a harder time opening up in a digital program, she expressed that online workshops engage more Vs in-person because people have more control over what they say and what they hear. Participants aren’t sitting in front of a group of people, and that makes sharing easier while discussing deep and tough situations that come up in a caregiver and chronic disease self-management online group.
