This group is for anyone who is supporting a person with dementia. We meet monthly, and every second month, we have a guest speaker who can offer different ways of practical support or information relevant to dementia. On the alternate month, we have an informal coffee morning where people are welcome to chat in a "safe space" or have a bit of social respite over a cuppa. We are only a very recently formed group with a small number of attendees, most of whom have a loved one in our care or are cared for by our staff in the community.
