At our Carer’s Drop In Session on 3rd October, our group discussed how to support contentment in relatives with dementia. At Chorlton Central Church, the group had a very positive discussion and came up with some top tips for Carers to increase wellbeing and contentment: Smile! Don’t contradict or citicise.
