Carer and Family Support Service
At Buds we strongly believe that supporting the Carer and family of those living with Dementia is vitally important. Looking after a family member with dementia can be extremely rewarding but it can also present challenges and difficulties.
We can offer you:
Information and advice about dementia and issues that affect carers, assistance with accessing other organisations and support in the community or just a listening ear. This support can be provided in your home, at a place in the community or via the telephone.
Dementia Awareness Training
Carers are welome to attend the open access Understanding Dementia training that will give them further insight into dementia and how it can affect the person. The training will also provide carers with practical tips on how best to support their loved one.
Talking Therapy Service
We offer a free and confidential counselling service to carers and families of people living with dementia.
Throughout the year we have various social events to give Carers and families the opportunity to meet each other and have a well earned break!
