Digital services

Dementia Carers Count is dedicated to family members and friends who are caring for someone with dementia.

Its team of health and care professionals has created a range of online services so that they can continue to support family members and friends caring for someone with dementia, despite the current public health restrictions.

Live Online Learning sessions

Its online webinars are designed and delivered by expert professionals and cover a wide range of topics. Each session runs for between 1 and 1.5 hours, and groups are kept small to allow you the opportunity to connect with others, ask questions, and relate the information to your own circumstances. They keep these sessions very informal and encourage you to bring a cup of tea and relax.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • Carers’ rights & benefits
  • Understanding the Mental Capacity Act
  • Relationships & feeling secure.
  • Understanding the psychological needs of a carer and a person with dementia
  • Visual changes in dementia
  • Resilience
  • Sundowning
  • Communication support
  • Music and dementia

What carers have recently said:
