Breathing Space Dementia and Carers group - with Argyle Trust

A weekly support group specifically designed for carers and their loved ones living with dementia.  We have create separate spaces for carers, alongside a project worker-led dementia group for their partners.  The carer space will be facilitated by 2 volunteers who will encourage peer support.  The carers will be in the same building as their partners so they can relax knowing that their loved ones are being supported by an Elder Tree project worker.  The format of the group is determined by the wants and needs of the carers within that group, whether that is peer support and sharing over tea and cake, or a specific activity which could be diverse as a walk, craft activity or singing session.  The project worker leads their partners through various activities, games and quizzes.
