Support Booklet for Carers Launched

Lewisham Dementia Support Hub has launched a new guide for carers in the borough.

The Guide for Dementia Carers in Lewisham gives answers to some of the more common questions that arise when caring for a person with a dementia diagnosis.

Created by our carers’ advisor, the booklet provides information and contact details about the the services and support available for both carers and cared for in the borough of Lewisham.

Subjects covered include: the side effects of medication; getting out into the community; and looking after yourself as a carer.

Carers have reported finding the booklet an invaluable resource to refer to when a query arises.
