These free programmes consist of seven, two hour, weekly sessions, covering a different aspect of dementia at each session and are held in City ane County locations* – Please contact Radford Care Group for more information.
The groups are facilitated by specialists in dementia group work and will consist of about 12 carers. Help with respite services and transport may be available. The cares are asked to contribute £2.50 per session towards refreshments. We are happy to take referals from both Nottingham City and County.
The Information Programme has been very successful and proved to be of considerable value to carers who are often coping alone and in difficult circumstances.
“I found the information evenings I attended with my Mum a very very helpful source of information for us to learn about my Dad’s dementia. Without the information provided I would not be able to cope with some of the experiences we are going through right now, as I would not understand what is going on in my Dad’s head and I wouldn’t be able to help him. These courses are very imprtant for helping people cope with experiences like this in life”
“Within the first hour of the first session I felt like someone had wrapped me in a warm blanket, I no longer felt alone”
