We offer training to family carers looking after a loved one with dementia. Family carers can either be the primary carers for the person with dementia or those indirectly involved in caring. For example, you might be worried about how a parent is coping with providing care for another family member.

This Family Carer Training programme aims to develop family carers’ knowledge of Alzheimer’s and other dementias, and their caring skills, to enable them to respond more confidently to their family members’ needs. It also provides opportunities for carers to meet other carers and share their experiences.

Delivered by The Alzheimer Society of Ireland’s experienced staff members, the course will provide you with new information on dementia and give you time and space to reflect on your own caring experience, whilst listening to and learning from other carers’ experiences.

The course is delivered in a warm, safe environment where confidentiality of all is valued and respected.

We deliver the course in both face-to-face and fully online formats. All our upcoming face-to-face courses are listed below.
