In the interests of safety, and in accordance with the most recent government guidance, we have decided to temporarily suspend the delivery of our face-to-face courses. We aim to return to deliver these courses when it is safe to do so, and we will continue to ensure that all people affected by cancellations have the chance to attend an alternative date in the future. We are grateful for your understanding, and we apologise for the inconvenience these cancellations may cause.

As we are unable to run our face-to-face courses, we have introduced a range of live online learning sessions covering a wide variety of topics.  Each session lasts between 1 hour and 1.5 hours and the groups are kept small so that everyone has the opportunity to discuss and ask questions. For more information and to book your place, please see here.

We will also continue to provide supportive and practical information through our Virtual Carers Centre and on our Facebook page.

To speak with a member of the team, email support@dementiacarers.org.uk or call us on 020 3096 7895.

 

 

Three-day Courses

 

Our courses are designed and run by healthcare professionals who are experts in their fields. We cover topics that will be beneficial to you for your hands-on caring role and psychological well-being. On our three-day courses you will build your knowledge about dementia in a way that will captivate your attention and we will provide practical advice and guidance. Our sessions are designed to help you find new ways to build your resilience so you can survive and grow through the most challenging of times.

 

During the three days, you will be provided with an invaluable opportunity to spend time with experienced and approachable professionals, to really learn, and to get the information and advice you need for your own unique situation. We ensure there is plenty of time given for you to talk to others in similar situations, so you have opportunities to unburden yourself, form new friendships, reflect and relax.
