Giving you the confidence to care

Caring with confidence courses are for those of you who are
supporting someone who has been diagnosed with dementia.
They are really beneficial and valuable courses.
“ It gave me information I did not know and it was great that
my mother could come with me.”

The person you care for can be looked after and given fun
activities with Harlington Hospice staff whilst the course
takes place and you can both stay for afternoon tea afterwards.
Transport can be provided if you might find it difficult to get there.
Please call Harlington Hospice
on 0208 759 0453 to book your place
