'When something enters your life that is so big and so non-negotiable...you either go in denial for a while, or ultimately you accept it and you make space for it. And in making space for it, you illuminate a lot of things that you normally don't have room for...you simply just look at the world differently' - Michael J Fox
Those caring for our patients are not just carers,they are close friends and family members of someone whose diagnosis has changed their worlds. As such, the depth of emotion, stress and worry that they feel can be considerable.
Our Carers' Support Group offers the chance to meet and talk with others in similar situations. Taking place once a month in St Albans, this group provides a welcoming and supportive environment for carers to share their experiences and is facilitated by Family Support staff and trained volunteers.
Who can come?
We welcome all carers of our patients. Refreshments will be provided.
