Weekly Breakdown
The session begins at 10am for a 10.30 start. This will allow carers to get a coffee and relax before the conversation starts. The conversation will last around an hour with each carer given an opportunity to talk if they would like to. A talking object (sand-timer) will indicate who is speaking and how much time they have. The session will end by 12 noon.
