Branches and Support Groups

These groups offer carers support, advice and information about dementia and its prognosis. At monthly support groups carers are able to discuss the services they have received and share the problems or worries they may have about looking after a dementia sufferer. Most groups invite speakers along at regular intervals to lead discussion on specific issues of interest and benefit to carers. Members of the groups and branches, who are mostly carers or former carers, are also keen to talk to other organisations about dementia and the problems faced by carers.
