Everyone needs friends. People they can talk to, a shoulder to cry on. But there are times when friends disappear like smoke in the wind. Often when you most need them. Like when a loved one gets a diagnosis of serious illness.
Illness can be the most isolating thing in the world. Who can you turn to for help? Fortunately, there are all sorts of charities and local groups that offer support – many of them just round the corner. Finding them can sometimes be a challenge.
From local support groups to dementia cafes, who have you found to be your friend in a time of need? Share your experience and tips with other Community members who may be struggling at the moment. We’d love to hear from you.
