New support group

A NEW support group for those whose lives have been affected due to a loved one suffering from Dementia is being set up in Lurgan.

The group will hold its first meeting on Monday, September 24, in the Quiet Room at the Jethro Centre from 7.30pm to 9pm.

It will provide a friendly atmosphere for everyone where they are able to share their experiences and gain support from others in the same situation as themselves. Light refreshments will be available. 
The group will meet on the last Monday of each month.

Also there will be a Carer Education and Information Programme running for six Tuesday evenings in October/November where the Consultant Psychiatrist Stephen Best and other speakers will provide talks to carers, family members and friends who can develop their knowledge on Dementia and the support that is available.
