Carers

[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

Braid House Carers Group meets on the last Friday of each month within Braid House from 1.45 pm until 3.15 pm. The Carers Co-ordinator is Mary Paterson.

The group has been running since 1996 and provides an opportunity for carers to meet up and talk about similar situations. Caring for someone

can be very stressful and it is good to have time to talk to others. There is a free sitter service at Braid House is would like to attend the group but don't wish to leave your loved one on their own. They can also come along to Braid House and be cared for while you attend the group.

There are often talks by professionals who can offer advice to carers and Mary can also suggest and direct carers to the advice or support they need.

If you would like any information about the Carers Group please contact Anne at the Centre on 01506 430615 and she can put you in contact with our Co-ordinator, Mary.
