Respite Support for Carers
Helping carers and their loved ones…
The Respite Support project is a great way to support not only the carer but also their loved one. It provides a safe environment that will help to encourage carers and their loved one to remember their pre-existing relationship before the caring role took over.
Groups will be held in community venues in north/south and central in Bolton and Bury with an online offer.
