Carer Support Groups
Connecting Carers Group
We have carers who would like to spend time getting to know other carers and we offer a six-weekly Connecting Carers Group throughout the year. This in an informal group with carers sharing their experiences, helping and supporting one another. We arrange external speakers to attend who provide appropriate services and support for those caring for a loved one with Young Onset Dementia. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to get the date for the next group meeting.
The Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) and Posterior Cortical Atrophy (PCA) Carer Groups
We have a number of carers looking after someone with a rarer dementia, such as FTD or PCA. We offer a dedicated regional support group for carers with a loved one with either of these rarer dementias and we collaborate closely with University College London’s Dementia Research Centre. Please e-mail email@example.com for more information and the next date for these meetings.
The Stronger Together Group
When carers reach the stage where their loved one with Young Onset Dementia has either had to enter long term care or has passed away the Stronger Together Group is there to provide support, through social gatherings and regular activities during the year. This group has been kindly funded by the Berkshire Carers Service since it began. If you would like to find out more about Stronger Together then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The YPWD Carer Group on Facebook
This is a private online group hosted on Facebook and exclusively for carers of a loved one with young onset dementia. It offers the chance for carers to post questions, support one another and be part of a like-minded group of people going through a shared experience. If you would like more information about this group then please email email@example.com
