Caring for a person with dementia can be very challenging.
You’re likely to experience an extreme range of emotions, one of which is often guilt. You might feel like you’re not doing a good enough job of caring or setting up support for a loved one, or you may be struggling to accept help. You may also be struggling to cope with the personality changes that the person you care for goes through. These feelings are completely normal and very common. It’s important to identify and acknowledge these feelings, so you can start managing and working through them.
We’ll be joined by Philippa Charlton from The Alzheimer’s Society and Admiral Nurse, Beth Hill, who will be leading a group talk about some of the common situations that might lead to these feelings, and offer advice, solutions and support.
