Dementia Centred

Families and volunteers are often at the forefront of support post diagnosis and can experience first-hand how the lack of understanding can have a detrimental impact on the quality of life for both them and the person they support.

DSDC has been involved in a number of projects focusing on providing informal carers and volunteers with the skills they need in their caring roles. Through evaluations DSDC is aware how much of a positive impact these workshops can have on families supporting someone living with dementia.

Recently, DSDC was privileged to meet a workshop attendee’s husband, Ian, who has a diagnosis of dementia. Ian felt so strongly about the positive impact the workshop has made to his, and his wife’s, life that he gave a short presentation at one of the workshops. Ian has kindly allowed us to share an excerpt of his presentation:
