In Our Shoes

Why Peer Support For Care Partners Is So Important

In Our Shoes is a user-led Dementia Carers Peer Support Group that has been running for over a decade. Carers often become isolated through no fault of their own and face obstacles when trying to have honest conversations and get honest answers to their questions when addressing professionals. We deliver a regular peer support group for carers of people living with dementia at all stages, to bring them together to share information, ideas, their reality and their experiences with others.

This week was very eventful here at the Young At Heart ULO activities.
Monday morning was very busy, with lots to discuss and lots to take in so our activity was kept simple, short and sweet; we spent some time writing short stories where you all take it in turns to add a sentence.

On Monday morning, the Stockton Activity Group took part in a chair-based exercise routine to help with mobility and fine motor skills. The group was well attended and it was great to see some people that we hadn’t seen since before Christmas.
