Talk to your family...

Although it may seem difficult at times, please try to share your feelings and concerns with family members.

Talk to us by visiting one of our dementia friendly cafes...

We find that our dementia friendly cafes provide a very good relaxed environment for a chat.

They are really a gateway through which you can access support and talk to people who really understand. 

 

We believe that to be able to talk with someone else who has experienced caring for a loved one living with dementia,

is a most vital resource - No-one really nows what it is like, unless they have experienced it.

Talk to other carers online...

Sharing your experiences with other carers can be a really helpful support as they will probably understand the difficulties that you are experiencing . You can also share your own tips and advice to help others.

If you're still struggling to cope...

It is very often difficult to talk about the stress and emotions involved with caring.

If you feel that you're not managing very well, please try to not feel guilty about it.

There is help and support available to you.

You may benefit from counselling or another talking therapy, which may be available online.

We recommend that you talk to your GP as soon as possible about your feelings.
