Alive are working with various partners across Bristol to deliver training for those providing care within the community.

Engaging with Dementia

Alive’s ‘Engaging with Dementia’ workshop supports those who are caring for, or who have a family member living with dementia.

Designed to help you understand more about dementia, it will also help you to communicate and engage with your loved one. Caring for or loving someone with dementia, knowing how to communicate or what to say can be challenging.   

Alive’s ’Engaging with dementia’ workshop will give you ideas, tips and techniques to understand how to communicate and understand better those who are living with dementia.  

Experienced trainers  

Run by our experienced trainers who have helped to care and love someone living with dementia, this course will give you space to talk and listen to others in a similar situation.    

Those who come will:
