Caring in Lockdown.

There can be no doubt that lockdown has been challenging for everyone – but for those caring for someone living with dementia it has been incredibly tough. Caring in Lockdown is an hour long webinar to support carers, help them connect with others in the same situation, provide a few ideas for activity and also how to keep themselves going in these difficult times. Run by experienced local dementia charities, each will be sharing their area of expertise – from personal experience of caring to activity and support ideas and will be able to answer questions. With expert advice and a listening ear on hand, this hour will be vital for those who need support or just want to listen to others.
