We are quite often asked about which services are available locally to support Carers with a few hours of respite each week - This is a very common question - so please do come along to one of our Dementia Friends cafes in either Wellesbourne, Tysoe, Compton Verney or Shipston, where Heather and Paul will be pleased to chat through the options available to you.
We would also like to encourage everyone living with dementia and their carers to contact the Dementia Connect in Warwickshire Service (previously known as the Dementia Navigator Service), delivered by Alzheimer's Society to talk to a member of the team to ensure they are well supported. This service can offer practical and emotional support alongside the support of the local groups which may be beneficial at any time, but particularly at the present time whilst things are so difficult for people with dementia and their carers.
People can self-refer to Dementia Connect, by simply ringing the Dementia Connect number here
