Psychological wellbeing practitioners from the county will be visiting the Alzheimer’s Society’s carers’ support group in Harborough on Friday.
Cheryl Ryan and Julie Scothern from Rethink Mental Illness, in partnership with Leicestershire Partnership Trust, will be sharing with the group how talking therapies can help the carers of people with dementia in the Harborough area.
The support group meets between 10am and midday on the first Friday of every month with the next meeting on Friday, November 1.
Meetings are held at Harborough Methodist Church’s coffee Lounge in Northampton Road.
Alison Chaplin, the peer group support facilitator, said: “This is a great opportunity for local carers of people with dementia to learn how they could receive additional support through talking therapies.
“This is a service available through the NHS and may prove to be very beneficial to carers looking for fresh ways to find support.
“It would be great to see new faces at the group and if you care for someone with dementia, you are most welcome to join us.”
The Alzheimer’s Society carers’ support group is free. Refreshments are also provided.
For more details, phone Alison on 0116 2136 922.
