We believe that Dementia Carers Count. We’re working for a world where all family and friends taking care of someone with dementia feel confident, supported and heard. We recognise the important challenge that you face – as a wife, a son, a daughter-in-law, a close friend – when you’re responsible for that person who really needs you.
You and your experience are unique; dealing with a complex and ever-changing condition that can’t be seen. It’s not something you’ve chosen, but it affects every facet of your life.
We provide free courses designed and delivered by healthcare professionals, that will help you develop skills and build confidence to navigate the highs and lows. Learning how to make your life manageable and maintain your own health and well-being is vital when you’re caring for someone with dementia. We’ll give you practical tips that you can use every day.
We give you the opportunity to meet and connect with people in a similar situation, and we’re here to listen, too. Sometimes you just need to get things off your chest and talk to others in the same situation. It feels easier when you know there’s someone to share the load.
We believe that Dementia Carers Count and we’re here to support you, wherever you are in your journey.
