Who we are

Supporting the Carers of someone with Dementia

We support the Carers of someone with Dementia, living in Crawley or surrounding area, this can be a family member, friend or professional. This can be from a slight suspicion and wanting to know more, right through to being in a care home and beyond.

We meet twice a week, on Fridays 10:30 AM – 2:00 PM, we have our lunch club, here a Carer can come along with or without the person they care for, to enjoy an uninterrupted few hours sit down, enjoy a meal that they haven’t had to cook, join in with a quiz, watch entertainment and meet up with friends.

Tuesday evenings from 5:30pm – 8:30pm is for Carers only, as we know sometimes it is important to be able to talk without your Cared for listening. You can come along at 5:30 for an evening meal enjoyed in the company of others or pop along from 6:30 for a cuppa and a chat.

Our Carers usually go home more relaxed than they arrived and although it seems odd we do have a lot of laughter when we all get together, especially when we all attempt the seated exercise or have a sing along!

Tuesday evening from 6:30 is a ‘just drop in’ session but if you would like to come to to eat or on Friday lunch club please ring us to book a place a few days before on 07486 869939 or 01293 427067

The cost

Friday Lunch costs just £5 per person and includes pudding, Tuesday Dinner is £4

 

We do not have a Membership fee but we do take subs, this covers unlimited refreshments and other sundry items and is £1.00 on Tuesdays and £2.50 Fridays.

All our Members and Volunteers have been personally affected by Dementia so as soon as you arrive you know you are among friends who truly understand your daily trials and tribulations!
