Online learning & Support group
Carers of people with dementia often speak about feeling frustrated with the person they care for and do not feel properly equipped to deal with their difficult behaviours and feelings of isolation. Often carers do not feel that they can talk to family and friends about what is happening. Peer support, especially for carers of people with dementia is a great opportunity to meet other people and share experiences with others who are in a similar situation.
Our virtual peer support group provides carers with support and relevant information to make the caring role a little bit easier.
Using webinar technology, carers meet up virtually to work together through the Carer Crisis Toolkit and develop new techniques for managing difficult behaviours, establish effective coping mechanisms and find ways to incorporate self care into their day to day lives.
Every person who participates in the virtual support group will also receive their very own printed version of the Carers Crisis Toolkit!
