Carers of people living with dementia talk about what helps them, what to do when things get tough, and where to find support

Carers of people with dementia can find it a challenge to stay positive, manage frustrations, take breaks, stay healthy, engage professionals, tell friends and family, engage them too, cope with changes to their relationships, live well and support their loved one, and get the sleep that is needed.

There is now a website for people living in our area packed with information for carers talk about what helps them and find links to other material and local activities.

Visit the website www.dementiacarer.net or share it with someone you know who cares for someone with dementia.

You can also visit the Connect to Barnsley website which has lots of local information on dementia services, activities, groups plus much more.
