Free Informal Dementia Awareness Sessions for Unpaid Carers

 

 

 

Here are the dates for Informal Carers sessions delivered by Approach over next couple of months:
 
• CHEADLE – Friday 15th/22nd/29th March 2019 1.30pm – 4.30pm @Cheadle Community Fire Station, Ashbourne Rd,, Cheadle, Stoke-on-Trent ST10 1HG
• STOKE – Thursday 7th/14th/21st March 2019 5.30pm – 8.30pm @ Approach Head Office, 10 Stoke Road, Shelton, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs. ST4 2DP
This course is being funded by Approach and therefore there are no restrictions with regard to where carers may live on attending and an evening course may suit them better. Please send any referrals as detailed below.
 
If you know of anyone who wishes or would benefit from attending, please send a referral with contact details to either myself or Hannah, hannahbridgwood@approachstaffordshire.co.uk or contact Head Office direct Tel No: 01782 214999.
These sessions are free to anyone who is a carer, relative or friend of someone with a diagnosis of Dementia and consists of 3 sessions over 3 weeks.
Each session covers different topics but ideally it is of benefit to attend all 3 sessions – I can send out an information leaflet to hand out if required – please contact me if you require an electronic copy.
Can I also make clear that these sessions are for UNPAID carers i.e. husbands/wives/sons/daughters/ other relatives who assist in caring for the person with Dementia and not staff working within a caring role.
I am able to deliver bespoke training to a variety of organisations including care services, charities, housing associations etc etc under our private training provision but this would incur a cost, please look at our website www.approachstaffordshire.co.uk for further information or contact our Head Office.
