NDAA Member Achievements: Dementia Carers Count

Friday 22 March 2019

Member Achievements Banner

 

 

 

 

 


For our annual report 2018/19 we asked our members to submit an achievement relating to supporting people living with dementia and carers they were most proud of from 2018. Each month we'll be sharing one of these and celebrating the fantastic work our members do. 

This month we hear from Dementia Carers Count about a residential course they offer to carers:

 

Dementia Carers Count

"We have provided 3 day residential courses to almost 200 dementia carers. The feedback they have given is generally 5-star:

"I came home rejuvenated, with my brain fizzing with ideas for improving communication, taking care of myself, improving resilience."


"The course did me so much good - I am still feeling calm and relaxed. This is probably the best I've felt in years. It's funny how a few days can be so transformative."


"Yes, I can honestly say the Dementia Carers Count course changed my life - and hopefully therefore my Mum’s a bit - but still work in progress!"


The courses are also being independently evaluated by Association for Dementia Studies, University of Worcester."
