What We Do
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.
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.
