We are a small part of the DISC team that covers the north of Birmingham. Our remit is supporting carers and their families who look after loved ones who are experiencing some kind of memory loss, some of you would have had a formal diagnosis from a professional team, telling you of a type of dementia that may be causing these life changes. We are able to visit you in your home or anywhere we can agree that you may find more comfortable over a coffee. We are there for you as a carer, where we can listen to your journey and support and direct where necessary along the way. This is a free service and it’s important for you to know that we are not just another service coming through your door but one who will get to know you and your family and be part of our journey and there for the life of dementia/memory changes. You will have a direct mobile number where you can make contact with us during our office times and someone will always get back to you.
In addition, our 1:1 support we also run a carers group held at Banners Gate Community Hall, where you are able to also gain a lot of emotional support too, this group will have a number of like-minded carers going through similar experiences and stages. The cares group runs every Monday from 11 am till 1 pm except for bank holidays. You don’t need an appointment just come down and you are more than welcome to bring your loved one too. We have a range of weekly activities including music, craft, healthy hints and demonstrations. Our group and service is support by all the local professional services like the memory clinics, GPs and their practice teams who from time to time will pop in and give talks to support you as a carer. You can always contact me directly for any further enquiries.
