  • Can't sleep, need to chat

    This is for all those people who maybe wish to chat when they can't sleep or need someone just to listen in the early hours. I just thought it might help. It sometimes feels rude to ask if someone is available to chat but if you join this group a message in the wee hours may get a response now. A Bit of a comfort group.

  • Caring for a parent with Dementia

    My mother is 81 and has vascular dementia and whilst she does have some carers covering her basic needs I am the only family member who has the responsibility for looking after her welfare and well being.

    I believe it is a different experience when you are the "child" looking after a parent (as oppose to a husband/wife) and would like to get in touch with others who may be in the same situation.

  • Carer's in York Area

    Wondering if there are any carers in the York area who would like to meet socially.

    My mother of 77 was diagnosed with 'early' Alzheimer's a year ago and deterioration is happening in leaps and bounds, plateaus then leaps and bounds again. I am on my own keeping watch and have a 17 yr. old son, and find it difficult to deal with the demands of both and no one to support me. I dread the years ahead as she never was the easiest of women to begin with! To be honest, I am finding it difficult to come to terms with the fact that all my plans have been ruined and I have now got to become a carer and I don't want to be, but I have to do my duty. I know I am not the only offspring who feels like this. Would welcome interaction with other carers of husbands/wives/parents

  • Activities for dementia

    I thought it would be good to create a group for people to talk specifically about activities with regards to dementia. Activities plays a huge part in living well with dementia, so I though why not discuss it? Weather it is ideas or weather you need advice - It is always great to have fellow people you can talk to about it.

  • Cameras and photography

    Photography provides the way we can look back on our lives before dementia broke in, and to see ourselves and our loved ones as we were then.
    It also gives us the way we can record the good times we can still have after dementia has messed up our lives - times that get increasingly precious.
    For some of us, photographs are all we have, at times.
