Armidale Dementia Carers Support Group – support is here

Caring for someone with dementia can be rewarding but it’s also a huge responsibility and has its challenges. It is very demanding on many levels; physically, mentally and emotionally. Carers often neglect their own well being when they are focusing on their clients or loved one’s needs.

This support group is designed to be a safe place for carers. Join other carers to share your experiences, learn new skills and enjoy the benefits of a social and supportive group.

-          Educational speakers

-          Monthly meet ups
