Full-Day-Dementia-care-training-EDM-1

Are you or your domestic helper caring for an elderly person aged 65 years and above, or looking after a loved one who has a disability assessed by a doctor?

The Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) provides caregivers like yourself a Caregivers Training Grant (CTG) of $200 per financial year! 

Put your CTG to good use by joining us for the Full-day Dementia Care Training, where we'll equip you with the knowledge to care for your loved ones.

Caring for the elderly with dementia can be stressful at times. Besides equipping caregivers with the essential knowledge and skills to care for the elderly with dementia, this course will also equip caregivers with the knowledge and practical skills to manage stress and prevent burnout. Participants will learn about the various stages of dementia, as well as how to manage behaviours and engage the care recipient with meaningful activities. Through classroom participation, caregivers are also able to form a social support network with other caregivers.
