People caring for someone with dementia are being offered support and advice at monthly carers groups being run by Alzheimer’s Society in Causeway.
The Alzheimer’s Society carer support groups provide opportunities for carers to ask questions and learn from the experiences of others within the group. Trained Alzheimer’s Society staff are on hand to provide information about dementia and practical tips about coping with the condition.
