Dementia Carers Workshop

Dementia Carers’ Workshop

Support for carers of people with dementia

Our Dementia Carers’ Workshop is designed to help people who are supporting a person with dementia in their own home.

We offer an eight-week structured support programme for carers of people with dementia. The workshops are held at our Day Hospice in Winsford and free parking is available.

You are welcome to bring the person with dementia to the Hospice with you. While you attend the workshop, your loved one will be cared for and supported by our staff and volunteers in a nearby room within Day Hospice. All staff and volunteers have received appropriate dementia and dementia friends training.

Cherished moments

The Dementia Carers’ Workshop will provide you with:

  • A safe and relaxed environment in which you can share problems, concerns or experiences with others who can relate to your situation.
  • Support to help you develop coping strategies to sustain yourself within the caring role.
  • Practical advice and information to help you maintain your own health and wellbeing.
What to expect

Workshops are limited to a small group of ten carers and run for eight weeks:

A typical eight-week programme will cover a range of topics such as financial and benefits advice, legal matters, advanced care planning, managing stress and practicalities of care.

We work closely with other health care teams and dementia support services and can refer you to these if longer term support is required.

Light refreshments are available during the sessions.

How can I access this service?

You can refer yourself or ask your GP, Macmillan Nurse, District Nurse, Social Worker or other healthcare professional to refer you. For a friendly chat contact St Luke’s directly on 01606 555681.

Do I have to pay?
