Carers

Our physical Carers' Cafe has been suspended due to the COVID-19 restrictions. We hope to start face to face meeting again very soon.

We run a Zoom for Carers to keep in touch, share ideas and information and meet socially.

Please contact us if you would like to join others who care for someone living with dementia - we would love to help you keep in touch and make new friends. We can even provide a tablet computer on loan to help you access these sessions.

 

Dementia Carers' Cafe

We started to run a Carers' Cafe in Haslingden, specifically aimed at those Carers who care for someone living with dementia.

This was originally a pilot, funded through NHS East Lancashire's Prescription for Wellbeing.


Carers have a tough time and the Carers' Cafes aims to provide social time with other carers who may be experiencing similar challenges, or who can offer advice or tips.

Each Café session has a theme and provides information, which we hope will be useful, together with time for socialising.


The Carers' Café is run by our Trustee Rachel Yates Hoyles, who has many years of experience working with and improving the lives of  people living with dementia and their carers.

The Carers' Cafe is free to attend and you will be made very welcome.
