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.

Coronavirus service update

Life has been a little different for us since March 2020 as we are sure it has for you, however we are still supporting our Members and loved ones, we are making two calls a week offering support, we can do shopping for those who need it and at Christmas we delivered 51 Christmas pressies to our Volunteers and Members to ensure they knew they were not alone.

As soon as we can reopen safely, we will, and life will return to normal albeit a little more grateful for what we have!

Under normal circumstances

We meet twice a week, on Fridays 10:30 – 14:00, we have our lunch club, here a Member 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.

On Tuesday evenings from 5:30pm – 8:00pm we encourage our Carers to come along on their own as we know sometimes it is important to be able to talk without your Cared for listening. Obviously, we totally understand that you may not be able to leave your loved one at home alone so it is also fine to bring them along.          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 evenings from 6:30 are a ‘just drop in’ session but if you would like to come to along for a meal on either Tuesday or Friday please ring us to book a place a few days before on 07486 869939 or 01293 427067

The cost

Friday Lunch costs just £6 per person and includes pudding, Tuesday evening Dinner is also £6 for two courses

We do not have a Membership fee, but we do take subs, this covers unlimited refreshments and other sundry items and is £2.00 on Tuesdays and £3.00 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!
