On the second Tuesday of every month we hold a support group at the Farm for people who care for people with Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD), formerly know as Pick’s Disease.
In April 2016 the group started and has grown since with many for the people who came to the first meeting still coming today! New members are welcome, you can either just come down to the group when it is on or call before hand to get extra information.
The group is very informal, come down for tea and a biscuit, join in in the conversation or just sit and listen. The group is run by 2 brothers who’s Mother had FTD, they understand how daunting being a carer can be and how little knowledge and support there can be for carers, especially in the world of FTD – a very rare form of Dementia.
The group is in place for people to come and chat about experiences, ask questions to others that might be going through the same thing, share coping mechanisms or just to get things off your chest.
