You might not think of yourself as a carer. In truth, many carers see themselves as a family member who looks after a person they love, not as a carer.
Carers may feel emotionally drained, physically challenged and spiritually exhausted. Because these are commonly shared experiences, you may not think to look for, or ask for help.
Co.As.It.’s counsellors will provide support to care-givers experiencing challenges related to their caring role and their loved ones with dementia.
This support offers confidential counselling, information and resources as well as socio/recreational weekly activity groups that maintain your well-being so that you can continue in your caring role.
Co.As.It. strongly believes in this much needed support for carers and has committed its own funds to facilitate its success. Community donations are always welcome.
