This hidden army of carers is often overlooked, so this day will be dedicated to hearing their stories and reflecting on their needs for practical and spiritual support. The topics for the day will be shaped by the needs of the attendees, but may include:
The ‘Self’ behind dementia: what’s happened to the person I loved?
From Spouse to Carer: changing roles, changing expectations
Isolation, Exhaustion, Guilt and Denial: where is God in all this?
Is there a ‘spiritual meaning’ to dementia?
Transformations, Transitions and bereavements: how does the nature of caring change?
