Oakley Friends are a
volunteer based group of Carers and ex Carers of Dementia patients
based in East Dorset.
Our aim is to provide support and helpful advice to Carers to enable
them to cope with the difficult tasks ahead of them.
The Group meets on
the last Wednesday of each month at:
The Canford Magna Centre in Oakley
Lane, Canford Magna, Nr Wimborne, Dorset.
The meeting starts with a friendly get together and
discussions followed either with a professional speaker or just self-help advice.
There is no restriction on where Carers live.
Twice a year we run
a ten week course for Carers, covering a wide ranges of topics
ranging from carer and patient well being, to benefits, legal aspects
and care organisations.
There is no annual
membership fee, but a voluntary donation of £10.00 is gratefully
