Meeting Today For Dorset Carers

Carers Night Out

8:28am 15th December 2014

How Dorset carers deal with the heart-breaking feeling of handing over the care of a loved one to someone else is being discussed at Carers Moving Forward's meeting today in Dorchrster. (15th December).

A representative from the Alzheimer's Society will be answering questions from 10am to 12 noon about how to deal with some of these feelings of guilt and how to find ways for carers to feel better about themselves.

Carers Moving Forward supports those who can no longer cope and have had to move the person they were looking after into residential care.

Founder of the group Enid Evans, said, 'Many carers in this position can feel very guilty or that they have failed in some way.

'We hope our speaker will give them reassurance and help them to feel better about themselves.

'However we shall also be celebrating Christmas with an informal lunch of soup and  some festive nibbles.'

The group meets at Age UK Dorchester in the Roger Thomas Room, Rowan Cottage, 4 Prince of Wales Road, DT1 1PQ from 10am to 12 noon on the third Monday of the month.

More information is available by emailing info@carersmovingforwarduk.co.uk or phoning the charity Help & Care on 0300 111 3303.
