Hi there it is Douglas Clark Founding member of Therapy for Carers UK here. Today in this post I am looking at linking a page on caring for someone that has Dementia. Apart from being a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Master Hypnotist and Master Practitioner of NLP running a growing practice in Leamington Spa and Warwickshire I am also a carer to my elderly father who has Macular Degeneration of the eyes and also Dementia. Therefore I am well aware of the challenges and pressures of care work. Some days and nights are filled with the demands of caring for him and at other times things do smooth out a little but they can quickly change too. I have found at times that I have felt frustrated, annoyed and at times in despair. I have had to learn to cope and learn to seek out professional help and support to in order to manage my own health and stress levels. I am somewhat fortunate in that I do have access to many strategies in that I am a long time practitioner of Transcendental Meditation and also I know how to take myself into Hypnosis which is called Self Hypnosis. That being said care work is most definitely stressful and that stress will be different for each Carer. I know that it has taken me time and effort to reach the place and space I am in now. It has also taken money to learn skills, knowledge and experience which I am now able to pass onto you if you are a Carer.
So please have a read of the article linked in this page and then if you like my post please do get in touch with us at Therapy for Carers UK
