Caring With Confidence

I went to my first 'Caring with Confidence' meeting at Huntingdon Library on 29th September. It was good to share the experience with six other carers. The session was ably directed by Lucy. We all gradually relaxed and got to know each other better, share our problems and exchange ideas where we could. I am looking forward to another session in November. If there are other carers who would be interested in attending, please contact
Wendy Fisher-Wrighton 01480 499091.
