Our Dementia Carer Support Course: How to Survive and Thrive has been developed for friends and family of people with dementia and supports a wide range of people in different situations. If your friend or family member needs your help and support to live with dementia; regardless of whether you live with them or not, then this course may be suitable for you.


This course is led by healthcare professionals who have experience of supporting people with dementia and their families. How to Survive and Thrive is a three-day residential course that runs throughout the year and is designed with your needs in mind. Attending this course will give you an opportunity to gain a better understanding of your friend or family member, the type of dementia they have, and to explore different ways of responding to challenges. There will be time to think about your own well-being, and you will be provided with a range of tools to enhance your resilience.


If this course is fully booked please email us at or ring us on 020 3096 7895 to join the waiting list and we’ll get you on a course as soon as possible.


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.
