As a carer it’s important to take a little break and spend some time talking to people who understand what you’re going through. That’s why we’re organising a weekly online Care for a Cuppa through Zoom.

These meet ups will allow you to connect with other carers and hear from organisations from across Wales on the work they are doing.

Each session is a 2-hour window for you to drop in and chat at anytime. Get support from the Carers Wales team, talk about your day or talk about anything else you want to talk about. This is a chance to share your thoughts and feelings in a friendly, welcoming environment.

Tuesday 1st December - 2.30pm: With a talk on the Herbert Protocol

Do you have a friend or relative with Alzheimer’s or dementia who is at risk of going missing?

We understand that caring for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia can be challenging and that planning ahead to help keep them safe is really important.

People living with dementia can at some point start to ‘walk about’, and while for some this may only be into the garden or street and returning a short time later, other sufferers can get lost and go missing. This can be a distressing experience for the individual and their family, friends and carers.

The Herbert Protocol is here to help you keep vulnerable adults with Alzheimer’s or dementia safe. It is a national initiative adopted by police forces around the UK.

Neville Davies from South Wales Police will be joining us at 3.30pm to tell us all about this.
