Carers Support Group
Monday 10am till 12pm
This support group for all Carers meets on a Monday morning. All Welcome! We discuss a variety of topics and end with a fun general knowledge quiz!
Carer Support Groups provide a great opportunity for Carers to meet, be heard and listened to whilst making friends and getting valuable support from one another.
Carers feel the benefit of taking timeout and meeting with other Carers in a relaxed environment, this kind of support and understanding of what each other are going through can often help to remove feelings of isolation and loneliness that can often overwhelm Carers. The groups also provide Carers with information to assist them in their caring role with occasional guest speakers offering practical information and advice on a variety of topics.
