Dementia Care: Staying Connected and Living Well

This free online course will provide information and advice to help you connect with and care for someone living with dementia.

When it comes to understanding and supporting a person living with dementia, family carers are very often the most skilled and knowledgeable. Yet carers can face a number of really stressful situations that can be difficult to deal with. 

Dementia Care is a four week course for carers led by Dr Lynne Corner. It aims to help you:

  • stay connected to loved ones

  • diffuse difficult situations

This course will provide you with knowledge and advice that can help you connect with and care for someone living with dementia. It focuses on everyday experiences that are seen as particularly challenging and stressful.

The course is also an opportunity to meet other dementia carers and academic experts.
