Abstract

There are significant numbers of people in the UK caring for someone living with dementia. Providing support to carers is both socially and economically important to enable them to continue in their caring role and improve their experiences. This article provides a dementia nurse specialist’s reflection upon running a 6-week educational support group for carers of people living with dementia. It describes the development of the group, challenges faced and discusses considerations for the future including a need to ensure sustainability through collaborative working. It highlights the positive outcomes described by carers who attended the course.
