Caring for someone with short term memory loss can be emotionally and physically demanding. Everyone’s journey is different. Our Dementia Wellbeing Programme is designed to offer practical support and information to help you in your caring role. We can provide group and one-to-one support, financial support, workshops and a Carer Learning and Wellbeing Programme as well as a Telephone Callback Service and other wellbeing support.
