Advice & Training
For Local

Our Care and Share groups offer a warm and welcoming place to socialise, make new friends and take respite for family carers and family members with mild to moderate dementia.

Care and Share membership is open to up to six couples (such as husband/wife/partner or parent/son/daughter). Members are able to relax and mix with other people who have similar experiences of caring for a loved one with dementia or memory loss. Once the group is established we arrange for family carers to have a three-hour respite break, usually once a month. There is a monthly membership fee for joining the group, covers the costs of activities, refreshments and the respite break.

Care and Share groups are currently being run in five locations across Shropshire. Please see below for further details, including which area coordinator to contact to find out more.
