Do you care for someone living with Dementia?
If you are concerned about a family member or yourself, who may have changes in memory or reduced abilities with day-to-day activities, you can make an appointment to talk with Sally.
Sally provides advice and support for carers of people living with dementia in the Northern Tablelands region. Sally has many years of experience working with both carers and people living with dementia. You are also welcome to attend our monthly Carers Support Group facilitated by Sally.
For more information or to make an appointment to talk to Sally, please contact the Armidale HealthWISE office on 02 6771 1146. No formal referral is required.
Armidale Dementia Carer Support Group
As part of Sally’s role, she coordinates the Dementia Carer Support Group, which meets on the third Friday of the month in Armidale.
At these meetings, we often have guest speakers to provide education on relevant topics, in consultation with the carers, to ensure current needs are met.
The group provides a safe place for carers to talk about their concerns when looking after a family member living with dementia and to learn from other carer experiences.
If you would like to join this group please phone the Armidale HealthWISE office on 02 6771 1146.
