MindforYou (01509 351008 mindforyou.co.uk) runs holidays in 12 different locations in England, Scotland and Wales. They are aimed at families and carers of people living with dementia, providing a relaxed break for all. Support staff are on hand to organise trips and answer every need. In the evenings ‘family’ suppers are arranged around a large table with music and the warmth of shared experiences.
These breaks have significant benefits for carers, lowering stress and helping them to sleep better.
The programmes began in May 2015 and have accommodated more than 100 guests so far.
