Crossroads in the Vale (EMI) Ltd

Crossroads in the Vale supports the family Carers of those who have developed a mental illness later in life, mostly dementia. We provide domiciliary support, e. G. Personal care, medication and meal preparation. We run a day centre 6 days a week, together with a range of lunch groups in the community for the dependent person, thus enabling the Carer to have a break from the stress caused by their caring role. The family carers are also offered individual counselling and Carers support groups.

Founded 1987
