Family, friends, and carers

We want to make sure you feel supported, valued, and informed so that you can take care of yourself, and your loved ones.

Being a carer can be both highly rewarding, but challenging role.

Dementia is an umbrella term for a number of progressive conditions which may affect memory, thinking, problem-solving, language, and possibly mood and behaviour.

Everyone will experience dementia differently, depending on the cause, on which parts of the brain is affected as the condition progresses, and their own personality and circumstances. 

Our course will help you to understand and support someone recently diagnosed with dementia.
