Dementia Care: Staying Connected and Living Well Online Course

17/10/2018

Are you caring for someone with dementia?

In response to feedback from carers, North Tyneside Carers' Centre is delivering a three week online course, starting next Monday, 22 October. The course has been created by Newcastle University and is available through their Future Learn platform:

futurelearn.com/courses/dementia-care

We will explore the modules as a group which will give carers the opportunity to share experiences, coping strategies and practical steps.  

The modules will offer insights into new innovations that can help to improve channels of communication; helping to build on and maintain relationships.

The sessions will run from 10.00 am - 12.00 pm on the following dates:

Monday, 22 October 2018

Monday, 29 October 2018

Monday, 05 November 2018

The sessions will take place in North Tyneside Carers' Centre, on the third floor of the YMCA, North Shields.   NE29 0BA

For further information and to book your space please contact Alexis Brown or Suzy Hall on 0191 643 2298.

Don't forget to check out our new video in which you can read Linda's story in which she talks movingly about caring for her father who has dementia; how their relationship has changed and the support she has received from North Tyneside Carers' Centre.

You can read Linda's story on our home page.
