Are you looking after or helping to look after a partner, friend or family member with dementia? If you’re not sure that the time has come to move to a care home this one-day course can help you make an informed decision for your current situation or the future.

Many people with dementia stay at home with support from family members and friends. However, the needs of the person with dementia can become more complex and too demanding for friends and family members to manage alone. When this time comes it can be stressful and worrying. Even if it’s something you never wanted to consider, the best thing for everyone may be moving the person with dementia to a care home.

The prospect of moving a family member or friend into a care home can be a stressful and emotional experience. That’s why we’re offering a practical and empowering one-day course to help you make the best decision for you and your family.

We will provide information about options for different types of care, advice on how decisions to move into residential care can be made, how to choose the right care home, and how to look after your needs and the needs of the person with dementia during the transfer.

The fee of £40 includes lunch

The lead facilitators will be:

Sue Hinds (Speech and Language Therapist)

Luisa Rabanal (Occupational Therapist)
