Friendly, new Dementia Carers’ Support Group at Rosewood Centre is a Lifeline
After attending a Carer Information & Support Programme at the Rosewood Centre in Ollerton, the manager offered us a room on a monthly basis for the group to continue meeting. This was a wonderful opportunity, so we have carried on meeting on the first Tuesday of every month, from 10. 30 until 12. 30 The group not only feeds our knowledge as carers but provides a monthly social event with stories and lively music to look forward to which is ''live'' and performed by the Rosewood Rockers.
The group is only small but is looking to expand by inviting any similar people in our position – dementia carers and the people they are caring for. One of the aims of the group is to further our knowledge as carers, so guest speakers will be invited to give us the support to be the carers we want to be. It would be good to see the group carry on and grow in numbers.
We would like to ask if the Trust can identify guest speakers who work for the older people service to come along and chat with us as we are very keen to link into the Trust and help it change services and lives of our loved ones and also link us to other carers.
It would be good to see the group carry on and grow in numbers.
