What We Do

Members activities 

Every Monday and Wednesday afternoon (except Bank Holidays) we hold tutored sessions in a variety of activities. Our members , with the support of volunteers, enjoy both the activity and the company of others in a relaxed fun atmosphere. Family members are welcome to participate also.

Family Members Support Group

Our family members’ group is on the first Wednesday of each month, while one of our activities is running in another room. Here people have the option to talk about their experiences and ideas, and share strategies that work for them.

 

Family members can:

  • gain encouragement from each other

  • build friendships; and

  • receive support from our designated family support volunteer

 

Occasionally expert speakers, such as solicitors, doctors and care managers attend meetings to pass on their advice.

 

Catch-up Group

Our catch-up group is for family members who no longer attend Chrysalis regularly, but who want to stay in touch. They meet informally for coffee and shopping trips.

 

Some family members have also set up their own spin-off groups to socialise and support each other through difficult situations, such as when residential care may be being considered.
