Free Information and Education meetings starting in January 2012.

Are you looking after someone with dementia?

You are invited to a series of free Information and Education meetings starting in January 2012.

  • You may be a spouse or partner, a son or daughter, a sibling or a friend. 
  • You may be caring for someone who has Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia. 
  • The person you are looking after may be living with you, you may be offering support from a distance or they may be living in a care home.
  • You may be coming to terms with a recent diagnosis or struggling in the later stages of the illness.

All sessions will be led by an Admiral Nurse and an experienced dementia care trainer, together with input from invited experts including other family carers.

In addition to the group meetings an Admiral Nurse will be available to support you individually over the phone for the duration of this programme.

We realise that it might not be possible for you to attend every session although ideally this is a complete programme.

If you have difficulties leaving the person you look after in order to come to the meetings, please let us know and we will try and offer support with finding a relief care worker.

Please note: These meetings are for relatives or friends of people with dementia and not paid care workers.

This programme is supported by a grant from the Department of Health.
