All our live online learning sessions last between 1 hour and 1.5 hours and the groups are kept small so that everyone has the opportunity to discuss the information and ask questions. We also like to keep them very informal and so we encourage you to maybe bring a cup of tea and a piece of cake!

The sessions will be led by one of our expert practitioners and there will be time built in to reflect, ask questions and relate the information to your own situation. All the sessions will be recorded and a copy sent out to you after each live presentation is completed.

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