I am pleased to announce a new dementiaCOMPASS programme. We are working in partnership with our local Dementia Carers’ Support Service to offer a regular monthly lunch club for carers of a person with dementia, starting in February. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for carers to link with resources and give you a way to connect with each other.
Here are the details:
This lunch club is for carers who are:
- caring at home
- caring at a distance
- caring for a relative in a residential home or
- who have recently lost someone who had dementia.
You will have opportunities to connect with carers like yourself on the day.
Two course meal followed by a short talk pertinent to being a carer or about resources available.
Lunch is £9 per person and includes two courses, plus coffee or tea.
(We are also creating a small committee of carers to lead the speaker and resource arrangement. If you are a carer and interested in playing a role, please speak with Edye or Sally.)
Second Wednesday of every month
12:30 for 1pm
Our first meeting is on 13 February 2013.
The Six Bells Pub
9 High Street, Fulbourn CB21 5DH
Bookings essential, three days before lunch.
