If you live in Fife or Tayside, you might want to consider getting some support from our Befriending Project. We have a number of well trained volunteers across each region who would be delighted to help you in a number of ways. Befrienders are trained to help both carers and people with MND. They can come to your home to visit you, perhaps allowing some time out for your carer. Your befriender can also provide practical support and companionship when you are out and about.
We also run carers drop in sessions which are on a Monday afternoon from 1.30pm to 3.30pm. These afternoons are designed to give carers and family members the opportunity to have a much earned break. Anyone can come along and either enjoy the company of a small number of carers who are going through a similar experience or access our free complementary therapies (Perth and Glenrothes) or both! Refreshments and sandwiches are also available free of charge. Please come along one afternoon if you think this type of support might benefit you.
Carer drop in days for 2012 from 1.30pm to 3.30pm which includes lunch and complementary therapies, if desired.
