Spotlight on carers’ rights and benefits
Caring for a family member or friend with dementia can be financially challenging. There is a range of financial support available, but getting to grips with the system can be tricky.
This session explores the range of carers’ rights and benefits and the types of assessments and support available.
The various benefits will be described, and there will be an opportunity to reflect and apply this to your own situation.
This session is for you if you would like to …
- Gain a better understanding of the rights and benefits available to you and the person you care for
- Spend time with experienced healthcare professionals who will answer your questions in a safe, supportive environment
- Meet other people who are taking care of a friend or family member with dementia in a similar situation
