Caring for someone with memory loss or dementia?

Dementia Oxfordshire offers FREE information sessions with tip and advice for people who are supporting someone with memory loss or dementia.

The sessions offer an invaluable insight into a person’s unique experience of dementia and the changes it may bring.

It is also a good way to connect with others sharing similar experiences.

Sessions are informal, supportive and friendly, aiming to:

- give people a better awareness about what dementia is
- give people a better understanding about how dementia affects a person’s thoughts and emotions as it progresses
- help people understand how factors often outside the control of people living with dementia may impact their wellbeing
- suggest ways to live well with dementia
- help carers look after their own wellbeing

Duration: Up to 3 hours - giving plenty of time for questions in an informal atmosphere and a chance to relax over some refreshments.

Can’t find a suitable session on the website?  Or finding it difficult to attend a session?

We’re continually developing new locations according to need. Please contact us with your name, location, and preferred time of day, such as am/pm or evening, and we’ll endeavour to accommodate your needs.
We are aware that committing to attending one of our training courses may be difficult for carers, including spending time away from the person that you care for.
With this in mind, we have a few alternative options available to meet your requirements:
– We have some very useful e-learning links, if you would like to find out more about dementia at your own pace
– Shared sessions with the carer and person with dementia could be arranged
– Volunteers could stay with your loved one whilst you attend a group session

Please contact Rachel Oscroft for more details, via tel: 01993 893572, tel: 07889 600174 or email: roscroft@guideposts.org.uk
