After Dementia 

 Published on: 4th February 2019   |   By: Charlie Reynolds   |   Category: Uncategorized

85-year-old, Hazel Gammage, has set up a group for people to go and open up about their personal experiences with Dementia.

The group is aimed at getting carers or people who have lost someone to Dementia to open up about the lasting after effects it has on them.

Hazel said: “People who have been caring for people with Dementia, have their lives severed and focussed all on that person. When you lose that person, it’s hard to then focus on you and get back to making yourself happy.” 

Hazel, who has lost two husbands and her mum to Dementia, says that a lot of carers say, “Until you have been there, you don’t know what it is like.”

Hazel is getting the message out that the people suffereing are not along. The class will allow people to share their feelings.

The club will meet on the first and third Mondays of each month at 2.30pm at 27 Sandy Lodge Way, Northwood, HA6 2Ar.

To get in touch with Hazel call 01923 824235.
