Training to help you if you are caring for someone with Dementia

Whether the person that you love has just had a diagnosis or you have been caring for someone with dementia for a long time, there is always something new to learn. If you are armed with as much knowledge about dementia as possible it will help those with dementia live a happier life and also make your role as a Carer easier too.

Birmingham Carers Hub offers a range of support to those who look after someone living with dementia. We have three delivery partners (Age Concern BirminghamAge UK Birmingham and Dementia Carers Count) who together form the Dementia Carers Hub. With the expertise of our health professionals, trained advisors and welcoming group leads, you will be guided and supported throughout your caring journey.
Dementia Carers Count (DCC) is part of the Dementia Carers Hub providing expert advice exclusively to Carers so you can freely and confidentially share your experiences. If you are a Carer registered with Birmingham Carers Hub you can access FREE online and face-to-face learning sessions on different topics (don’t worry, there’s no test) and have an opportunity to chat with other Carers. You can access the Virtual Carers Centre resource any time, day or night.

Visit our page dedicated to dementia Carers to find out how to access our dementia awareness sessions.
