Caring for someone with a debilitating illness is an exhausting and challenging experience.

Carers talking to each other

Our support group offers carers of older people suffering debilitating illness such as Alzheimer's or MS the chance to meet and mutually support each other.

What Takes Place At The Group?

We offer a variety of speakers and outings which we hope will cater for all tastes. We try to steer clear of specific issues around caring as we feel that members of the group like to talk about other things on their afternoon off. However, members always have the opportunity to share and discuss problems or issues of concern.

When Does The Group Meet?

The group meets on the 2nd Monday of the month, from 1:30 - 3pm, in The Community Room at St. John and St. Anne's, South St, Oakham (almost next door to Oakham Fire Station).

Is the group free to attend?

Yes.
