A care home in Eye is welcoming new carers to its monthly support group designed to help local people caring for an older loved one.
Hartismere Place, on Castleton Way, is hosting new support group on the last Thursday of each month, from 2pm-4pm, with members of the local community invited.
Carers will be able to enjoy a chat over coffee and cake with likeminded people, while their loved ones make the most of a range of activities.
Locals will also get the chance to hear from Karen, from Suffolk Carers Matter, who can offer advice and guidance, and Jan, who is a dementia champion.
Home manager Abhilash Gopi said: "We believe that no carer should feel that they are alone, so we're looking forward to welcoming some new faces for a chat over a cup of tea and slice of cake."
