Posted May 21, 2014

As part of the challenges faced providing care in the home and in response to the Government’s initiative on Dementia, Mediline have decided to set up meeting groups at our head office in Foston, Derbyshire.

The KISS group will be open to anyone within the local area, not just clients who subscribe to Mediline services.

The group will meet on a monthly basis and will enable carers to come together and bring along the person that they care for.

The objectives of the KISS Group are to:

  • Provide the opportunity for people to get to know others in a sociable setting and share experiences
  • Provide the opportunity to socialise, make new friends and talk on a one to one basis with professionals in an informal setting
  • Give carers relief
  • Deliver informative sessions on issues related to dementia and signpost where further information and support can be accessed

Refreshments will be provided.

Our next session is on 28th May 2pm – 4pm.  The local Fire Service will be attending to give information of what is available.
