Dementia training for friends & family of people living with dementia

01 February 2023

We are running free interactive webinars for people supporting a family member or friend with dementia who is living in the community, a retirement living community or in a care home.

The session lasts 1.5 hours and has been designed to give families and friends practical tips to help them support a person with dementia wherever they are living. 

The training is facilitated by Coleman Training and will help families and friends to:

  • Develop an understanding of dementia and the different types of dementia
  • Identify different ways of supporting a family or friend with dementia
  • Look for sources of support for themselves.

Requirements for the training:

  • Access to zoom via a computer, laptop or tablet with a working camera and microphone

  • Atendees should have a connection with MHA i.e. their family member lives in an MHA care home, retirement living scheme or attends a MHA communities scheme.
