Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s/Dementia can be very stressful, isolating and demanding. Peer support is a source of valuable emotional support. Carers want to know that they are not alone and to get practical advice from others who are in the same situation. This group provides an informal environment where carers can discuss issues affecting them and seek advice and support from others who are in the same situation. On occasions various professionals will be invited to present on condition specific topics, along with general information sessions on other areas of interest, games activities and outings, all over a cuppa and biscuit. The aim of the group is to provide carers with a level of personal peer support, information on services, how other carers accessed these, deemed them appropriate to their needs, as well as a much needed respite from your role as a carer by having fun and feeling more confident and comfortable. The group is support by Duncan, the group worker from Renfrewshire Carers and a Dementia Advisor (normally Fiona). The group meets in the Norcroft Medical Centre, 1-3pm, on the 1st Thursday of every month.

4th August 2016 - Ian Houston from Alzheimer’s Scotland will facilitate the Alzheimer’s Group.
