Live and Learn Dementia Project
As part of the service, Swansea Carers Centre have launched their Live and Learn Dementia project.
A diagnosis of Dementia often creates more questions that answers. If you are caring for someone with Dementia, then Live and Learn Dementia can offer you accessible sessions on all aspects of understanding dementia, how to plan for the future, wellbeing activities and more. You can meet other Dementia Carers and have the support of others at a time when you need it most.
Live and Learn Dementia will complement dementia services already provided by Swansea Carers Centre, such as the Dementia support groups, and advice and information provided by the Dementia Co-ordinator.
What’s On and When
The Project What’s On guide has sessions running weekly until Christmas. They include Anita Tomaszewski from Me, Myself & I, An Introduction to Dementia by Nick Johnson, Caring at Christmas with Alex Waters, Memories Through Music and some festive activities too. There will be two of most of the sessions, one will be in person at the Carers Cwtsh by the Carers Centre and the other half online to ensure as many carers as possible can access them.
