We've had the below message from Rebecca Wilson, the Dementia Support Manager for London's early-onset dementia support service. I hope it will be helpful to some of you.
"Hello, I work for the Alzheimer’s Society in London and I'm currently involved in a project to support the family members of someone who has been diagnosed with young onset dementia.
We are hosting a peer support group for young adult carers (aged approx. 18-35 years) with a parent who has a diagnosis of dementia, to meet monthly in London and share information and support with each other.
It's been great to read some of the posts and see the support you are able to offer each other via the forum, and so we would like to extend an invitation to come along to our peer support group session and perhaps meet in person.
The group is one evening per month in the Islington area, and the next meeting is scheduled for 6:30pm-8pm on Tuesday 11th August.
It is a relaxed, informal session – teas and biscuits are provided – however, we do ask that people let us know before attending so that we can keep you updated in the event of any changes.
If you would like to find out more & book a place, then please get in touch with me or one of the team on the contact details below."
