If you provide care or support to someone with memory loss or dementia you may at some stage develop feelings of sadness, fear, loss, guilt, anger and isolation. As a carer it is important that you have the opportunity to talk about your feelings but may feel uncomfortable sharing them with other family members or mutual friends. Within our sessions we can explore your feelings in a confidential, supportive and non-judgemental environment.
Many carers neglect their own physical and emotional wellbeing as they focus their attentions on the person with memory loss or dementia. Your relationship with the person who has memory loss or dementia will inevitably change as the condition progresses and this may affect your feelings towards them. You may also be undertaking additional responsibilities such as dealing with financial affairs, house hold management or increased parental responsibilities if they have dependent children.
Within our sessions you can develop an understanding of how the symptoms of memory loss or dementia are affecting you and your loved one and help you to develop coping strategies to manage your feelings in a healthy, positive way that will benefit you both.
