This course has been designed for people whose friend family member has moved into a care home. Some of the topics we’ll explore will include how you can make the most of visits, tips for communicating with the care home team, understanding funding, dealing with feelings and palliative care.

 

While your attending this course our healthcare professionals will ensure you have the time to think about your own well-being and will provide you with a range of tools to enhance your resilience and build confidence.

As a charity we do not make a profit. It costs us £650 per person to deliver the course, including food and accommodation. We do not want anyone to be excluded from our services so we are not charging a fee for our courses. Therefore, we invite course participants (or their employers) to donate to the charity on completion of the course, if they are able to. A donation of £5 pays for a coffee break for a carer, £15 pays for a carer’s lunch and £300 pays for an expert course facilitator for a day. All donations, big or small, make such a difference.

 

Donation forms will be provided at our courses. You can also donate using the donate button at the top right corner of this web page.
