Supporting Carers Session 3:
Coming alongside people living with dementia and caregivers
In this session we’ll explore God’s heart for those living with dementia, which underpins all that we do in supporting them and their caregivers. We’ll then highlight ways we can come alongside those living with dementia, that value their intrinsic worth and promote enjoyable moments together. All this will help us in developing better support for their caregivers.
