Growing Older with Learning Disabilities and Dementia

Growing Older with Learning Disabilities and Dementia (GOLDD) is another service that has been added to the Birmingham Carers Hub offer.

Through a partnership with Forward Carers, Midland Mencap will help to deliver the new Birmingham Dementia Carers Pathway. Midland Mencap has a long history of working on the city’s G.O.L.D.D agenda, supporting both working age adults with a learning disability and dementia and their family carers as they grow older together.

Joining our established Family Carers Wellbeing Service is the new dedicated post of ‘GOLDD Wellbeing Facilitator’. Lara Carter, has been appointed in this exciting new role and will work with family Carers of adults growing older with dementia and our pathway partners, to build a person centred and user led wellbeing and support offer.

This is a unique opportunity to work together to co-produce a mix of opportunities for GOLDD Carers to engage with each other and benefit from: information, advice and guidance, health and wellbeing workshops, GOLDD Creative Arts, GOLDD Café, GOLDD wellbeing walks. In addition, there will be a range of accessible and tailored indoor and outdoor activities for Carers, or as a family with the people they care for.
