Dementia Carers

Carers of any age can now get specialised 1-1 and group support from our dedicated Dementia Support Worker, Sue Grant.  Many of you will remember Sue from our Improving Health Outcomes Project a few years ago, that led to the development of some of the regular exercise classes and activities that are still running today.

Specialist Advice, Information and Referrals

We work in partnership with a range of outside organisations to ensure both you and the person you care for are on the right support pathway.  We can provide you with information and advice about relevant support services for you and the person you care for and refer you to respite services.

Peer Support and Activities

Join our dementia carers support group on zoom and meet other carers and make friends.  This group is a great opportunity to socialise and find out what’s going on locally, as we often invite speakers to keep you up to date with useful services. Our zoom group includes music and activities. The group is also open to the person you care for with dementia. As soon as possible we will resume our face to face group meetings and activities. If it is not possible for you to join our on-line groups, we can send you a postal activity pack. The pack includes lots of fun and interesting things for you to do alone or with the person you care for. 

2nd Thursday every month, 2pm – 4pm, contact Sue Grant on 07498 839 343.

   

Giving You a Voice

We want to hear from carers of someone with dementia to find out about your experiences and ensure that your voice is heard.  Our support groups can also be forums, where we invite decision makers along to hear directly from you, about the services that matter, including health and social care.  Your feedback can influence local policy and provision.

We have also devised a short questionnaire for you to tell us about the services you access, the difficulties you face and what your interests are.  This will help us to provide support that is tailored to your needs. If you are recently registered with us, you will already have received this questionnaire. If not, we can send you another one.
