The Beagle Editor, When services are short on the ground, we just have to get on and do our own thing. I am referring to services for people struggling with dementia and their carers. Because of Covid 19, the support groups in Eurobodalla had to be suspended and have only recently recommenced. Dementia Australia has a Support Worker, who is only available in Eurobodalla two days a fortnight. During that time, he organised a Support Group in Batemans Bay. There was a Support Group in Moruya originally. However it has been assessed that the need is greater in Batemans Bay. I would like to start an informal get-together in Moruya, initially on a monthly basis but with the possibility that it would become fortnightly. I have never run a group like this. However, I would like something to be established before I become desperately in need of support from people who really understand what living with a partner/parent/sibling with dementia is like. So if anyone is are interested, please call me on 0427 498 918 for a chat. I am also interested in making contact with any of the volunteers who were working with the original Moruya Support Group and who would like to be involved again. Hopefully, together, we can get something off the ground early in 2021. Anne Rault
