Aims Of The Carers Dementia Service

The main aim is to protect carers own physical and emotional well being by providing comprehensive one to one support and guidance through their caring journey. The service provides:

  • Emotional support
  • Practical support
  • Information and training
  • Signposting to other services
  • Crisis respite/carers breaks

Share Experiences With Other Carers

At the weekly support meetings Carers are encouraged to share their experiences with other Carers, and they also have an opportunity to speak to staff about any issues or concerns. The following are quotes from carers who have used the Carers Dementia Service.

“Since accessing the Carers Dementia Service, I’ve realised I am not alone….I’ve been on training courses, social trips and received a companionship service for my husband to enable me to concentrate on my own well-being… it’s changed my life”
“The Cwtsh has become my safe place, it’s where I come to have a laugh, it’s given me confidence”.
“I find myself bottling things up, until I can let it all out at the Dementia drop-in… I’ve made so many new friends …..”
