Carers’ Information Programme offers support and guidance

Karen Edwards, Facilitator of the Carers’ Programme

Karen Edwards of the Alzheimer’s Society, Cardiff and Vale, is planning an information course for carers of people with dementia.

The course will be held over six consecutive weeks (on a Monday or Tuesday) at a venue in the Vale of Glamorgan, starting the first week of August 2011. Each session will be two hours long.

The sessions will cover: understanding dementia; difficult behaviour; Carers: looking after yourself; what services are available; financial and legal information; and a review session.

Karen would initially like to know which carers are interested in attending the Programme. Once she has a list of participants, she will arrange the course to run at a time to suit the majority.

If you would like to take part in the Carers’ Information Programme, please contact Karen Edwards on (029) 2043 4968.
