    Dear All,

    I think might be very useful to list the names of nationally recognised care support groups [and national websites if you have them to hand] so that we can put this information into our Resources Section. I'll start the ball rolling...

    Crossroads Care
    Community Service Care Support - see your local authority web

    Dear Jude,

    Came across this site when searching for something else. No use to me but might be great for others. http://www.thecliveproject.demon.co.uk/index.htm
    as far as i'm aware they cover the oxfordshire area & borders, & are a charity offering carers to support people with early onset dementia .

    take care all

    Helen

    where to get help

    I have just had a lady come to see me from the red cross,they have just started a dementia respite support service which is provided free to run along side support from social services.Initially the service is available through referrals from social services, local mental health teams and alzheimers society reps. Itcan be for up to 4 hrs duration.This will be ideal for those unexpected appointments or just for time out.She was also a mine of information on providing care aids on loan and even transport door to door for drs and hospial appointments for mum.hope this is some help to someone,it will be for me.

    Where to get help

    I don't know whether this is of any use, but I have written a booklet aimed at men who have never done any cooking and find themselves having to attempt to provide meals for themselves and partner.

    It has been produced by the Huddersfield branch of the Alzheimer's society.

    It is called Men Cooking by Frank Barraclough.

    I am sure that if anyone felt the need for one, the branch would be pleased to supply one on receipt of a large (A4) stamped addressed envelope.

    Dar Barraf,

    This will be so helpful for all those chaps out there who are caring for loved ones with AD.

    Very best wishes,

    Jude
