Meeting online to support carers

28th January 21

Mindfulness with dementia Zoom sessionAt Caring Together we are still supporting carers, we have just changed how we meet you. Restrictions due to coronavirus and the situations facing many carers, and the people they look after, mean we are not out about in the communities in the usual way. But we are still here to meet people using online resources such as Zoom.

What we are offering includes:

  • Support for bereaved carers. In these current times it is more important than ever to stay connected.
  • For adult carers we have interactive Zoom groups where you can get support from each other, try relaxation therapies, hear from a variety of speakers providing different information and advice, as well as enjoying some light-hearted fun.
  • Adult carers can have one-to-one support via Zoom with one of our professional carer advisors – we call these carer clinics. These clinics run mostly on a Tuesday or Friday, but if you are not able to have a carer clinic during normal business hours, we run some clinics on a Saturday too that you can book in for. All these clinics are in addition to the support available through our helpline.
  • For young carers we have interactive Zoom workshops available for primary and secondary age carers. Our workshops aim to achieve some key objectives – trying something new, improving confidence or health and wellbeing, and providing all important fun!

If you would like to access any of our virtual support services, please get in touch via [email protected] or speak to us on 0345 241 0954.
