Carer Information and Support Groups

We will be covering a wide range of areas – 16 different locations – and will be running 58 in-person sessions and 18 Zoom sessions throughout the year, giving you the opportunity to meet other carers and talk to our experienced support team. You will notice that there are some new venues in the programme, and, as always, you are most welcome to attend the session of your choice.

We are pleased to announce that from September onwards, we will be having refreshments at our groups.

More information to follow on the BAME North and Young Onset Dementia groups.

There will be a variety of topics:

Mindfulness: Relaxation is a must for carers. Learn invaluable mindfulness techniques delivered in a calm setting.

Carer Essentials: The must-know elements for carers, from emergency planning to benefit entitlements and everything in-between.

LPOA: All you need to know about Lasting Power of Attorney. The session is delivered by a partner solicitor and includes time for questions.

Understanding Stress, Anxiety and Depression: Understand the impact of stress on carers, recognise the signs of anxiety and depression, and find out how to help yourself and how to access support.

Working with Professionals: Discuss positive ways of working with health and social care professionals to help promote confident, positive communication.

First Aid: Feel confident about what to do in a medical emergency.

Are you caring for someone?

Do you look after someone who cannot manage without you because they are ill, frail or have a disability? 

If so, you are a carer and Carers Bucks can help you.
