Dementia Carers Support

Quick Navigation Menu

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. You can subscribe to our Carers bulletin. This provides you with vast information, including when our next Carers' Zoom is. You can get a link to the Zoom by contacting admin.

We provide training, advice and guidance, but carers can also learn from each other. Our carers meet, either face-to-face, online, or on the phone. We will also signpost you to the services you or your relative needs.

Carer Training Courses with Together Dementia Support

 

The comprehensive course, Caring for Someone with Dementia, covers a range of topics. Anyone can attend. We have refined the course to make it relevant and useful as possible, and it includes: * What is dementia? * Benefits and legal matters (including Power of Attorney) * Activities and things to do at home * Communication techniques for people living with dementia * Taking care of yourself For members of our South Asian communities, we offer this course in Urdu or Bengali. Our one-day Learning From Living With Dementia course was designed by Buzz Loveday from Dementia Trainers and co-produced by EDUCATE. This course will be helpful to anyone who works with people with Dementia, family carers, service providers, people interested in volunteering - and even members of the public.

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: 1. 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. 2. Send an email to admin@togetherdementiasupport.org, or message us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. 3. 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. 4. Put your suggestion in our Online Suggestions Box. It's completely anonymous, so you don't have to provide any contact details if you don't wish to. 

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 Trafford.
