Training courses for family carers

Dementia Oxfordshire runs free training sessions for family and friends who care for someone living with dementia. The sessions offer an invaluable insight into a person’s unique experience of dementia and the changes it may bring. It is also a good way to connect with others sharing similar experiences.

Sessions are informal and friendly and aim to:

- To give people a better understanding about what dementia is
- To give people a better understanding about how dementia affects a person’s thoughts and emotions as it progresses
- To help people understand how factors often outside the control of people living with dementia may impact their wellbeing
- To help carers look after their own wellbeing

Duration: Up to 3 hours- giving plenty of time for questions and a chance to relax over some refreshments.
