Caring for a person living with dementia
Family carers do all the worrying and caring for a person with dementia. We see you as the experts, and you deserve the best support and guidance.
Being a family carer or a care partner is a 24/7 job, and many new dementia carers find themselves unprepared and with few resources available.
We are dedicated to providing the support each individual needs, including emotional support, signposting and system navigation, social events and frequent opportunities to learn from other carers.
What support is there for carers of people with dementia?
Free training for dementia carers
Together Dementia Support offers a comprehensive 5-week training course for dementia carers. You can choose whether to attend the course in person or via an online platform.
The course covers as much as possible to help build your caring confidence. It doesn't matter how long you have been caring, and we can support you at any point in your journey.

FREE for Family Carers
Caring for Someone with Dementia is a free course for carers at any point in your caring journey to help support you and give you tips and information.
It’s also an opportunity for you to hear from other people in the same situation, sharing experience, making connections and supporting each other. We recognise that in reality, the majority of invaluable information carers learn, they learn from experience. We want our training courses to be a source of both practical information, as well as an opportunity for carers to share their experiences. You will learn a lot from each other, and sharing your experiences might help in ways you didn't realise.
Each session will have a mix of information, interviews with experienced family carers, and breakout groups to discuss issues and burning questions you may have.
If you want to join us on Zoom, but don’t have internet or a PC, get in touch as we may be able to loan you the necessary equipment.

"It was great to be able to see other carers and listen to their situations.
It was a real tonic."

Ongoing Carer Feedback & Service Consultation
We want Together Dementia Support to be as participatory as possible. We always want your feedback and ideas about what could help you and other carers.
If you would like to provide feedback, make a suggestion or share your ideas about the services you receive from us or support you would like to receive, you can do this in the following ways:
Fill in our Ongoing Carer Feedback Form. It is online, and should only take a few minutes to complete. The form will ask you to provide your name and contact details should we wish to follow up on your feedback.
Send an email to email@example.com, or message us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
Call the office and have a chat with us. We're open for calls Mon-Fri from 9.30am, and the office closes at 5pm. Our number is 0161 226 7186.
Feedback received from carers may be used to support our bids for future funding so we can continue to strengthen, grow and develop our provision for carers in Manchester and North Trafford.
