A recent study found that two-thirds of people living with dementia feel isolated. Our free online course “Dementia Care: Staying Connected and Living Well” starting on 23 May has been written to to help people stay connected and to communicate well.
In the first week of the course we explore dementia’s effect upon the person, on our personal relationships and on daily life.
Here is a sneak preview of one of the videos featuring Dr Lynne Corner:
The course has been written with family carers in mind. In it we hear from carers and experts as we explore practical strategies that can improve communication. Lynne draws on Newcastle University’s great expertise in ageing and dementia research and together with colleagues shares knowledge on dementia, language and practical strategies that can improve communication.
