Every month Action for Family Carers host a support meeting at Colne View care home, offering the opportunity for local carers to meet others, share experiences and gain access to local support services.

Action for Family Carers can help with legal matters including power of attorney, as well as applying for other entitlements, counselling and pursuing leisure activities in the local area.

In this session the group will be sharing advice on how carers can look after themselves when caring for a loved one, as well as top-tips on managing stress. Members of the team at Colne View will also be available for any questions you may have and to give tours of the home.

At 3pm, David Martins, customer relations manager at Colne View, will be holding a Dementia Friends session for anyone that wants to learn more about caring for a loved one with dementia. For more information please call 0333 434 3019 or email david.martins@careuk.com
