Carers Groups

Dementia Carers

Heads Up understands the critical work that carers do for their loved ones. We also understand that they need support, too.

Carers can meet in Shepton Mallet or Wells and share experiences over a hot drink. Our sessions often have visiting speakers, while we are on hand to give advice about where to access information and services, both locally and nationally.

We would love to meet you, so please come along and join us or ring the office for more details.

We are always keen to promote good mental health within our carers and are able to offer ‘Pamper Days’ during the year eg. at Strode College in Street and The Ammerdown Centre near Radstock.

For more details regarding the help available for carers, please see our local services page.

“I am very satisfied with the care and thoughtfulness given across the board. I also find carers’ meetings helpful and it is good to meet up with others in the same position as me....”
