New support and arts-based activity group for Westminster dementia carers and the person they look after

We are delighted to announce that we will be launching a new Dementia Carers Support and Arts Activity Group for Westminster carers on Thursday 17 August, 1:45pm – 3:45pm at the Beethoven Centre, Third Avenue W10 4JL.

The group will be run in partnership with Resonate Arts (previously Westminster Arts).

You will be able to enjoy an arts session with the person you look after, followed by a separate support group with fellow carers!

The format for the group will be as follows:

  • The group will meet and have refreshments at 1:45pm.
  • There will then be a joint arts session for carers and cared for together from 2pm – 2:30pm.
  • Between 2:30pm and 3:20pm carers will separate for a support group together.
  • At 3:25pm the carers will re-join their cared for, see what they have been doing and join in!

After the first group on Thurs 17 August subsequent sessions will be on the 3rd Thursday of every month.

Places are limited. To book please email events@carers-network.org.uk or call 020 8960 3033.

If your cared for is not able to take part in the activity, but you would still like to go to the support group part of the session by yourself (which starts at 2.30pm), you are welcome to attend just that part.

Please likewise confirm if you intend to come to this by emailing events@carers-network.org.uk or calling 020 8960 3033.
