Dementia Awareness Course:
We offer this group for people caring for a relative or friend with dementia. This is available to people living in Blackpool or registered with a Blackpool CCG GP. The course is designed to increase carers’ knowledge of dementia and improve their confidence to provide care. It also gives an opportunity for people to share their experiences, gain support and learn from others in a similar situation. Each session lasts for two hours and the course consists of four sessions. Times and days vary so please speak to us first to add your name to the waiting list.
Please view the leaflet below for more information:
In addition, we provide a fortnightly drop-in for dementia carers. This takes place every other Thursday from 11.30am to 1.00pm. Again this is an opportunity to share experiences and seek support from our workers.
Both activities take place at our Carers’ Centre:
