Have you, or a member of your family, received a diagnosis of dementia or mild cognitive impairment?
Our free six week course will give you all the tools and information to have a better experience of living, or supporting someone, with dementia (or mild cognitive impairment). It is particularly invaluable if you or a family member has recently received a diagnosis and now wants to know how best to continue to live well and enjoy life.
Taking the positive step to learn about dementia and gain a better understanding and awareness of some of the possible changes or challenges ahead, also enables you to develop coping strategies and forward plan – to make choices and retain control of your life.
These small-group interactive sessions are very relaxed with many opportunities for discussion and asking questions. They will also enable you to meet others in a similar situation, talk through any concerns or anxieties and build up a network of peer social support.

We hope you feel comfortable and supported to share your experiences and concerns. We aim to create a safe, confidential, inclusive and welcoming environment. Do let us know if we can do anything to make the sessions more positive and helpful to you.
