Carers4Carers

Looking after a loved one, or somebody you know is?

Have you heard the Governmentís information adverts on the radio about the new Care Act which comes into effect on April 1st? It provides essential extra rights and support to those who look after a loved one or a friend. Many of those who do this donít recognise themselves as carers and so they miss out on vital information, services and benefits. 

Carers4Carers is a self-support group of carers offering a friendly, relaxing opportunity to meet with others in a similar situation over refreshments. At some meetings we have a speaker while at others we have time for talking, exchange of ideas and information or enjoy a much needed TLC session with our lovely therapist Anita. We can look after your loved one in our Companionship Group, which meets at the same time, bookable in advance.

Time of meeting? Fourth Friday of the month 10.30 Ė 12 noon at Kineton Village Hall. Phone 01926 640203 email kcarers4carers@gmail.com for more information or help with transport.

We have a monthly informative newsletter to keep you up-to-date, especially useful if you canít come to the meetings.  Please ask to go on our mailing list.
