The project aims to provide a unique opportunity for carers to receive the learning opportunity at home alone or with other relatives, or to come together in a group setting outside the home.
Training at home will be offered primarily to carers looking after a relative at home. The workshops will be open to all carers regardless of where their relative lives.
Carers will benefit from
- Increasing their knowledge and skills
- Increased confidence in their own abilities
- Improved relationship with the person in their care

- An opportunity to meet others in a similar situation
The project will be lead by Bromley Minds Dementia Skills Coach.
