We welcome carers here at Sycamore House.
You may not even realise you are a carer.
To help you, the NHS defines a carer as a person who is either providing or intending to provide a substantial amount of unpaid care on a regular basis for someone who is disabled, ill or frail.
If this is YOU, please let reception or your GP know and we will provide support for you.
The Memory Club
The aim of the Memory Club is to provide a social platform for people with varying forms of memory loss, their family & carer to support each other better whilst taking part in various stimulating activities. It is also a place where others can drop by and learn information about dementia and how to help reduce the risk of developing dementia.
A diagnosis of dementia/memory problem is not necessary for individuals to attend the club – it’s FREE to attend along with FREE refreshments.
Just a sample of activities on offer include: Singing, Art therapy, Dancing, Card games, Memory box therapy, Jigsaws, Crafts, Water painting and much more.

Mencap – The Voice of Learning Disability
Did you know that people with a learning disability can get extra support when visiting the doctor? All they need to do is join the learning disability register.
Tell your doctor you have a learning disability and they can check if you are on their learning disability register.
When you are on the register, you will be offered the support you need to make things easier, like:
- extra time and support during your appointment
- easy read/accessible information
- help to make an appointment
You can also be offered a full health check every year.
