News: One of our carer trainers is running a Dementia Awareness Tea Party on Wednesday 22nd May, in celebration of Dementia Awareness Week and to raise funds for Alzheimers Society. The tea party, titled 'Worrying changes nothing, talking changes everything' is open to all and is a time to feel free to talk about dementia. Drop in any time between 1-4pm at the Community Centre, Queen's Square, Adeyfield, Hemel Hempstead.
Stevenage carers looking after someone with dementia now have access to emotional and practical support from our specialist Admiral Nurse. Find out more.
The Forum, which started in July 2010, meets quarterly and represents the carers' voice at meetings of the National Dementia Strategy Working Group and the Quality of Care Working Group.

Services for people with dementia and their families are jointly commissioned by Hertfordshire County Council and NHS Hertfordshire and provided by the Hertfordshire Partnership Foundation Trust and by private and voluntary domiciliary and residential care providers.
We are currently asking carers to tell us about their experiences of residential care and respite care – if you have something to share or would like to get involved with the Forum in any way, please contact us.
