NEW EPISODE on Sunday 12th August at 3pm

This month we say au revoir to Bruce Guthrie and hear about what's coming up in future episodes with our new host, Paola St George.

Care for the Carers East Sussex have news of some free new support and activity groups for people who are unpaid carers for people with dementia taking place in Bexhill, Hailsham and Seaford. These groups are specifically for both carers and the people they care for to attend together

The monthly Making Memories groups start in August, and are facilitated by Care for the Carers, a charity that supports unpaid carers across East Sussex.

Each group will offer a chance for carers to meet other carers of people with dementia, and have a chat and a coffee. Activities in each group will be led by the carers attending, but are likely to include things like quizzes, music, and reminiscence sessions. The idea is for carers and people living with dementia to have an inclusive and safe space to come together, relax, and socialise in friendly company.
