A six week programme for carers and family members of people living with dementia – with free activity sessions provided for the person you support.
Caring for someone who has Alzheimer’s or one of the other forms of dementia can be rewarding – but equally it can take its toll mentally, emotionally and physically.
In response to the challenges carers face, the Building Mental Health Resilience & Wellbeing programme, from Age UK Tameside and Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind, provides the tools to better navigate through the stresses of caring for someone with dementia.
Mind’s definition of resilience: The ability to adapt in the face of challenging circumstances
The programme takes place for two hours a week, over six weeks. The first hour of the session helps you gain an understanding of how to build resilience; the second focuses on activities that support wellbeing.
We’ll care for the person you care for
We know carers struggle to take part in activities if the person they care for can’t, or doesn’t want to, be left alone. To help you overcome what can be a huge barrier, we’ll provide a free engaging and stimulating activity session for the person you support while you are in your session.
It’s open to all carers
It doesn’t matter how you care, if you are caring for or supporting someone with dementia in the Tameside borough you are eligible to take part. You may be:
• Living with the person you care for
• Caring for a family member who lives alone
• Supporting someone who is living in a care home
• Supporting someone who lives further afield.
