Caring With Confidence
Caring with Confidence Dementia Course:
Do you care for someone with dementia?
If so, our popular Caring with Confidence course could help you.
All sessions will be delivered at the Carers' Centre in the YMCA, from 1.00 - 3.30 pm each Thursday.
Our next session on the 12th October, the first of two sessions about Caring for Someone With Dementia will look at symptoms, how they relate to behaviour, effective communication and ways of coping with, for example, repetition, aggression and unusual behaviour.
Thursday 19th October: please see above
Thursday 28th October: Caring and Coping - will look at strategies to help you minimise stress, competing demands and will help you to consider how your caring role fits with other aspects of your life.
Thursday 2nd November: Caring Day to Day - the final session will look at the practical aspects of looking after someone with memory problems, how it can affect your life and the resources and services available to help you as a carer.
