Tuesday mornings are a lot less lonely since I joined the group.

A big thank you, to everyone involved in Dementia Actif’s support zoom meetings which I have been involved in over the past six months. They have provided me with companionship, moral support when feeling a bit lost whilst looking after my husband who has Mixed Dementia.

I have made friends through the meetings, have improved my qualities as a carer, with practical advice received, not only from other carers, but the amazing guest speakers who have guided us all with their knowledgeable advice on all practical matters relevant to being a carer.

The group makes me feel valued in so many ways. I can share how I feel with people who understand. I have received such great information and am now in the process of organising some respite care for my partner because of this. And I had the opportunity to feedback about the new Carers Assessment information leaflet- this made me feel valued as an individual not just as another over-worked carer!

Felt up lifted being with like-minded companions. Look forward to our next session.
