Solace runs a number of Carer Support Groups for those whose family member or friend has a diagnosis of dementia. A carer can make a one-to-one appointment at the Solace office or in their own home. There are Husbands and Wives and Past Carers groups for which people do not require a referral (see separate records). Among groups for which a referral is needed is a Cognitive Stimulation Group for a person with dementia, combined with a Carers Educational Forum. Weekly Community Support Groups offer subsequent support for people who have attended these sessions. Solace also organises Indian Head Massage and Reiki sessions for carers.
Please contact the service provider for details of any costs.
