A 6 week course to help people living with dementia, their families and carers, is being offered by the Alzheimer's Society in York.

Starting on April 27th, the course aims to help people understand more about dementia in its various forms and how it will affect them.

Previous courses have run successfully with participants developing greater understanding of the symptoms of dementia, and learning useful self-help strategies.

“During the last course it was great to support people to understand the challenges they may face and to give them ideas about how to live well with the disease.

The feedback was just amazing and demonstrated the impact the course has had on participants. The group had been so helpful and supportive of each other. They have been very positive and there has been so much humour with participants laughing at themselves and life in general.”
