Creative Caring for Dementia Carers

Do you care for someone with memory loss or dementia (with or without a diagnosis)? Would you like to learn more creative ways to communicate with them? Our exciting new Creative Caring for Dementia Carers project will offer you a safe and supportive space where you can:

  • Talk freely about the challenges and experience of caring for someone with dementia
  • Explore techniques for self-care
  • Learn more about how dementia and memory loss can affect communication
  • Learn new, creative ways to communicate such as using music, memory boxes, poetry, singing, crafts and sensory methods such as hand massage
  • Develop the skills to give you more confidence to speak up in meetings with professionals
  • Get information to help you understand and plan for the financial impact of caring for someone with dementia
  • Take part in at least two trips to dementia friendly venues with the person you care for

There will be face-to-face sessions in Leicester City, Loughborough and Oakham; the first sessions are taking place in November – see the flyer above for dates.
