KASBAH are pleased to announce new service provisions for unpaid Carers in the Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley area.
We are now able to offer two specialist services to Carers:1. A network of local support groups;
each group’s agenda will be tailored to individual group’s needs, availability and location.
Support groups enable you to be open, frank and honest about the reality of caring in a room of like-minded people who understand and share your experiences. The aim is to come in as a service user and form long term friendships which will provide a long-term support network for you.
Please contact us for further details or if you are interested in setting up a support group in your area, we are here to support you.
2. A ‘Sitter’ Service;
KASBAH has a team of dedi- cated volunteers who are able to come and sit with the person you care for for up to 3 hours per week to give you a regular, much needed break. Please note this is a voluntary service so the volunteer will not be able to be left in your home alone but they can entertain the cared for to enable you to catch up on some rest, have a long soak in the tub, get on with some of the jobs that you never have time to do. Alternatively the volunteer can accompany you out in the community so that you can have an extra pair of hands or shop without having to juggle your car- ing tasks at the same time.
Please contact us for further information, we have a volunteer waiting to support you.
