Carers Support Group


The effects of acquired brain injury are so wide, so unique and also often invisible that many carers, family members and friends find it difficult to get support they need.  What carers have in common with each other is the need to share stories and know that people really listen and understand.  Our carer group is to meet other people in the same situation, to value each others ideas and experiences, to have a break and to get practical information.

A recent donation enabled us to organise a Pamper evening for members of our carers group.  They had a wonderful evening where they were treated to facials and head massage and the opportunity to have their hair styled and nails painted. 


 

Future dates for our Carer Evening at 6pm till 7.30pm at Headway Shropshire
