Have your say

People caring for someone with dementia are being offered the chance to learn more about the disease and how it affects the individual in a Carers Information and Support Programme being run by Alzheimer’s Society Hull and East Riding.

The programme is a series of workshops and aims to help carers understand more about the condition and its symptoms, including the sort of behaviours that people may display which can at times be challenging. By understanding more about dementia the workshops will help people to cope better with caring for the individual.

Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Support Manager, Kate Atkins said: “Relatives of people with dementia often say that it can be really frustrating when someone doesn’t want to change their clothes, have a shower or sleep at night, especially if the person doesn’t accept that there is anything wrong with them.
