Carers often feel the profound effect caring can have on their own lifestyle – spending long hours providing  care, juggling their own needs with those of the person they are caring for, and forfeiting their social time. As a result, carers of people with dementia are more likely to experience stress and depression. 

Jane told us: 'Dad lived by himself and would call me day or night, if he couldn't get hold of me he would immediately ring the police. I was permanently on edge, waiting for the phone to ring, waking up in the night listening for the phone. 

I was physically and emotionally exhausted – I stopped seeing my friends and going out. I was desperate for help, but kept putting off going to the doctor. If it had been as easy as logging onto one of your webinars at home it would have made a huge difference.' 

This may be your situation, so please join us with expert Lesley Young from AgeUK for an upbeat invigorating session on Dementia Awareness, and discussion about problems and solutions.

Joining online is simple. All you need to do is book a place and we will email you a link that you need to click at the relevant time and date (you might need to check your spam and junk mail folder). All you need is access to the internet, a phone, laptop, tablet or computer with a camera and microphone (most laptops and phones have this built in now).

 

Please be aware that these sessions are only available to carers who are currently registered with us. If you haven't already registered with us and are a carer please be aware that we will take your booking as an indication that you would like to be registered with us and someone will be in touch with you for further information.
