Come and join us for a practical and participative training day, as part of our work to create more dementia-friendly churches at the heart of dementia-friendly communities. We will focus on the impact of dementia not only for the individual with dementia but also for those close to them. When and how do you move from being not only a husband or wife, son or daughter, but also a carer? As you take on the responsibilities of a carer, what’s difficult – and what helps you?
