- The Virtual Dementia Tour: This innovative training experience, run by Training2Care, will give you an understanding of what a person living with dementia experiences daily.

- Experienced Carers: Sharing their experiences and tips for how to keep on top of everything, even when it seems like you can’t go on.
- Fun and Educational Activities: Hands-on workshops and activities to stimulate beneficial behaviour – including reminiscence therapy, seated activities, movement, art etc.
