Dementia Carers Workshops

 

Are you supporting someone living with the effects of dementia or memory loss and would like support in providing the best care for your loved one whilst balancing your own life?

You can join CASS’s new Caring and Support Skills Workshops specifically for Dementia Carers starting Wednesday 2nd March. Research shows that 1 in 14 people over the age of 65 have dementia, which will increase to 1 in 6 in people aged over 80 and come 2025, it is predicted that over 1 million people will be living with dementia.  

You will be able to access information and advice tailored to supporting you to increase knowledge and confidence around your health and wellbeing, community, support networks and the person you provide care for.

There will be one weekly session each week for 4 weeks over Wednesday 2nd,  9th, 16th and 23rd March 2022 from 10 am – 12 pm. These sessions are held virtually – so you can join us from across Staffordshire regardless of your location. If you, or someone you know of, is interested in joining this workshop please contact our Carers Advice Line on 01785 606675.

The Caring and Support Skills workshops are tailored to individual groups of Carers, if this one isn’t for you, there are more planned for the future including caring from day to day, health and wellbeing and moving on. Information about these will be sent out closer to their dates. If you know of any other Carers that are not registered with CASS, you can share our details to ensure they don’t miss out on the support they are entitled to.

 

We look forward to seeing you soon
