This free workshop is for family carers to help them understand dementia, communicate effectively and plan for the future.

Participants will learn about the causes of dementia, the importance of diagnosis and early planning. The session will also explore changes in communication that occur for a person with dementia, problems that may arise from communication breakdown and helpful suggestions for easing communication challenges for the person with dementia.

As a carer, attending this information session will provide you with:

  • Opportunities to meet and talk with other carers & families involved in dementia care
  • A deeper understanding of the impacts of dementia including why changes are occurring
  • Information and contact details of local support services available to you
