Our Monthly Meetings

Carers4Carers holds a meeting on the fourth Friday (which isn't always the last!) of the month between 10.30 and 12 noon.

We meet at Kineton Village Hall, Mill Street, Kineton, Warwickshire. CV35 0LB

 

We always start with coffee or tea and an opportunity to chat - a very important activity for those especially who experience isolation because of their caring role. 

At some of our meetings we have a speaker. Speakers are invited based on requests or recommendations from members of the group. Some of the speakers and subjects we have had in the past include:

  • Age UK
  • the Fire Brigade - home safety
  • Jeremy Wright MP
  • Alzheimers Society
  • Warwickshire Reminscence Action Project
  • Guideposts Trust
  • Legal Issues
  • Shakespeare Hospice

Our future programme can be found here.

Last year the members decided that they would like the occasional meeting when they had more opportunity to talk themselves. Approximately one in three meetings are therefore without a speaker. We talk, we take part in some lighthearted activities and we enjoy some lovely therapeutic treatments offered by Anita from Tranquil Beauty in Wellesbourne.

The Companionship Group

One of the problems carers often face is that of support for the person they care for while they attend meetings. Some carers are unable to leave the person they care for at home on their own. That's why we started the Companionship Group.

The Group runs alongside the carers' meeting and enables the carer to bring their loved one with them to the Village Hall  where they will be looked after in a safe and friendly environment. The group is run by a qualified and highly experienced care worker assisted by a retired volunteer nurse. The group provides much needed stimulation and an opportunity to socialise as well as participate in a variety of activities.

It is essential that we know in advance that you are bringing your loved one to the Companionship Group so that we can be sure that we are able to meet the their needs appropriately. Do get in touch, please see the details on the Contacts page.
