Dartmouth Caring started 28 years ago, initially helping with transport to the local surgery and hospitals. It’s come a long way since!
We still help with transport to medical appointments but we also run a number of support groups – Lunch Clubs, Memory Cafes, Visually Impaired Club, Young Carers and more.
Most of our work is now one-on-one help for the elderly and vulnerable. One-on-one care takes many forms: It can be helping in the return from hospital, recovering from moments of crisis, counselling, or sorting out administrative or financial burdens.
