Are you supporting someone with Dementia? Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed?

13-May-2015

If so, why not sign up for our 7 week Mindfulness Based Dementia Care Programme. As well as meeting others in a similar situation and gaining and giving mutual support, you’ll also learn how to:

  • Use Mindfulness approaches to relax more and view stressful situations from a new angle. (Mindfulness is being used very successfully in a range of situations such as schools for exam preparation and health to relieve pain).
  • Dementia training that helps you connect more effectively with the person you support leading to an improved quality of life for you both.

Starting on Thursday 28th May 2.30 – 4.30 at St Mary’s Hospice, Ford Park Crescent, Ulverston, LA12 7JP and then the following 6 consecutive Thursdays

“Family carers should attend this course as soon as a diagnosis is given.If I’d come earlier I think mine and my husband’s life could have been very different.”
Participant from Kendal Programme that ran between Jan & March 15.

Programme Cost:Free – however donations will be welcome and will go towards future programmes.
