Who we are

Supporting the Carers of someone with Dementia

We support the Carers of someone with Dementia, living in Crawley or
the 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.

Getting Together

We meet twice a week, on Fridays from 10:30 am – 2 pm we have our lunch club at Tilgate Community Centre, where our members can come along with or without the person they care for, enjoy an uninterrupted few hours sit down, enjoy a meal that they haven’t had to cook, join in with a quiz, watch entertainment sing along and most importantly meet up with friends.


Tuesdays from 2 pm – 7:00 pm we are at Burleys Wood Community Lounge, Brunswick Close, Furnace Green.
Here you can just pop along anytime for a cuppa, a chat, meet up with others to share experiences, get advice, and support or offload! We encourage our Carers to come along on their own as we know sometimes it’s important to be able to talk without your Cared for listening.
However we totally understand that you may not be able to leave your loved one at home alone, so it is also absolutely fine to bring them along.
You will find it very comforting to be around others who know what you are going through.

Our Carers usually go home more relaxed than they arrived and although it seems odd, we laugh when we all get together.

You are welcome to pop in for a cuppa at either session but if you would like to join us for a meal we need you to ring to book a place a few days before on 07486 869939 or 01293 427067 (please leave a short message and someone will get back to you)

 

The Cost

 

On Tuesdays, we ask for £1 subs to cover the cost of refreshments.

 

Friday’s subs are £2.50 which covers unlimited refreshments and other sundry items such as games and prizes etc.

Friday’s Lunch is a two-course home-cooked meal and costs £8.50.

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!
