INTRODUCING THE CEDARS' DEMENTIA CARERS SUPPORT GROUP
Sadly, increasing numbers of people care for a friend or relative who has been diagnosed with Dementia. They know that living with Dementia presents a real challenge, particularly when they are the sole carer, and at times may feel very isolated. Some people feel they would benefit from meeting other carers in the same position, in an environment away from their homes and those they care for, so that they learn from and support each other.
The Cedars Surgery is very keen to support individuals who care for someone who has Dementia and is providing a room in the practice where carers can meet regularly for a couple of hours and have a chat over a cup of tea or coffee in an informal, confidential and supportive atmosphere.
The principle aims of the group would be to:
- Provide mutual support and help
- By sharing experiences and
- Finding different ways of coping
