The team at Care UK’s Whitebourne care home in Frimley are launching a new programme of evening support meetings for people caring for loved ones with dementia.
The monthly drop-in and support service begins on Wednesday 1st May and will feature a talk by John Spencer-Davis, from Andover Mind.
Mr Spencer-Davis will be speaking about services available to carers in the local area and also holding a question and answer session.
Whitebourne Manager Ros Stevenson said: “We realised that many support groups and events for people caring for loved ones with dementia are held during the day and, due to work commitments, people miss out on valuable information that could make life less stressful for them and their loved one.”
“The meetings are designed to provide practical ideas for helping someone with dementia, as well as providing a friendly network where everyone understands the emotional and practical issues.”
Over the coming months, specialist guest speakers will be taking part in the sessions to provide advice and guidance on a wide range of subjects that affect people with dementia and their carers.
Ros added: “The sessions will also provide a one-stop shop, with a vast array of information from many specialist organisations, so that carers, who are tired and busy, can pick up essential and practical information.”
The free sessions are open to all and will be held at Whitebourne, on Burleigh Road, on the first Wednesday of each month between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.
