Understanding Dementia Better

20 March @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

During this Zoom session, our expert training team will support you to understand dementia better, offering you small and easy steps that can make a big difference.

The 2-hour sessions are informal, and a great opportunity to meet and learn from other people in similar situations to you.

We actively encourage questions, which you can ask during the session or send to us before-hand.

You can expect to understand,

  • The common symptoms of dementia.
  • How dementia can affect the senses, communication and behaviour.
  • The importance of seeing the person before the condition.
  • Practical ways to connect with a person with dementia.
  • Strategies to overcome communication barriers.
  • Solutions for adapting the environment.
  • The benefits of a connection with nature and the outdoors.

Book your free of charge place here.

There is no charge for these sessions. Carers in Bedfordshire is a charity and relies on donations, if you would like to make more activities like this possible for other carers now and in the future, you can do so on this JustGIving page
