Terrigal Uniting Church
Learn how we can care for people living with dementia, particularly when they are still living at home, and also how we can 'care for the carer'.
Time & Location

Terrigal Uniting Church, 380 Terrigal Dr, Terrigal NSW 2260, Australia
About the Event
Rev. Frank Van Der Korput will be returning to Terrigal Uniting Church to lead “Discussing Dementia 2: On Caring”. The focus will be on how best we can care for people living with dementia, particularly when they are still living at home. Most importantly, we will look at how we can all “care for the Carer”, given that their load is the heaviest. How can we support them: emotionally, physically, through provision of respite, through education, and by helping them to navigate the complexity of the Aged Care system? How can Carers care for themselves, so that they don’t burn out? How can we help Carers deal with the “three griefs of dementia”: when their loved one is diagnosed, when they enter full-time care, and when they eventually die?
