One carer's experience of his dad attending one of 3 Dementia Support Groups delivered each week by Age Concern Causeway. Thank you.
"I am writing to say how much of a change I have noticed in my Dad since he began spending the day with Nicky and the guys on a Friday. It has brought an old sparkle back to his eyes after what has been an extremely difficult few years since his diagnosis of Dementia.
He regularly talks about his enjoyment on a Friday. He has developed a real kinship with Nicky and I would like to praise him not only for fulfilling his role admirably, but also the communication and trust I have in him in looking after everyone Age Concern Causeway supports, especially my Dad.
Thank you to you all for the fantastic job you do not only in making my fathers day, but the help it has towards [name] and I as my Dads carers. I'm sure you all know how difficult it is in this day and age to try and better yourself with study, maintaining employment to keep the roof over your head and trying to be there for my Dad 24/7. This afternoon enables us to arrange some us time but also enables social interaction for my Dad. This break in worry is so beneficial and after the last three years has highlighted the need for people like yourselves for people like me to have a little bit of self-care." ...
