Dear friends and colleagues

 

Hasn’t the weather been good over the Easter holiday, and I hope you’ve enjoyed your break.  Some might say we needed more sun, but, in a weeks time I’ll have some outdoor raspberries to pick, that means Chris and I will be having raspberries with our muesli as well banana and yoghurt.  Start the day as you mean to go on.

Thank you for using the link to our – “Event Registration form 2017“, which is on the front page of our website – www.careforcarers.org.ukand any emails such as this when you register your table space.

Doesn’t time fly, it’s only 8 weeks before we have our next “Carers Information Day” at the Norwich Forum.

The event at the Norwich Forum on Monday June 12th 2017 still has table space available, and if you would like to join us at the event please hit this link “Event Registration form 2017” and fill in all details required.  If more people apply than we have spaces for, we will have to give priority to whoever applied first, however, we will as always have a waiting list in case of vacancies occurring.

To date we have 48 organisations taking apart at the Forum, that means we still have table space for you if you would like to join us.

At 10.00am, Mr. Norman Lamb, MP for North Norfolk will be opening the event for us.  He is, as you will realise, interested and very involved with caring and helping others, and he has asked me to introduce him to as many of you as possible.

I will soon have a flyer made up for the Norwich Forum event, we I send it would you put up as many up as possible for as many people to see, and send to others who will be able to do the same please.

“Dementia Fayre” at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital

An exciting Dementia Fayre is being held on Monday 15th May from 10am in the East Atrium at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

Alongside a range of information stands they have a number of talks planned for the afternoon:

2 – 2.30pm  Motor neurone disease and frontotemporal dementia.

3 – 4.30pm  Music mirrors: Capturing the sound of memories. Learn how to make a toolkit for the dementia journey.

5 – 5.50pm  Become a Dementia Friend: Learn more about what it’s like to live with dementia.

6 – 7.00pm Communicating with compassion: Practical ideas on communicating effectively and with dignity.

All the organisations taking part in the “Dementia Fayre” are supported by “Care for Carers”, we all work together, and ”Together we are Strong”

Although our name is Care for Carers, at all our events we have so much support from you that we are able to say that anyone with almost any problem can call in for support, as if there is no-one there to help, someone knows where to get the services required, Networking has become a very popular item at all our events, so if you’re not able to have a table, call in, wet your whistle, and do your thing, you won’t regret it.

Regards and best wishes

Peter and Chris
